Looking for something fun to do during the Halloween season? This activity is just for you!
After singing "Five Little Pumpkins" using the page with visual cues, move on to playing the song as a class using Boomwhackers! The melody is notated with pumpkins that correspond to the colours of the Boomwhackers. But watch out for those ghosts - those are silent beats!
Did you have fun? Now create your OWN Boomwhacker melody using the colour-coded pumpkins!
Next, play Five Little Pumpkins from colour-coded notation on the five line music staff. Once you can do that, you're ready to create your own composition! Have fun!
