Kids love saying and acting out the poem, Five Little Pumpkins! They will have fun being the pumpkins as you say the poem.
It is created for you to display the poem in large or small group. The pieces are made for you to use on the end of a paint stick as puppets.
You can print on cardstock, laminate, and attach to paint sticks.
You can use the version with the words attached, just the pumpkins, or the word and pumpkins separate.
If you want to print them smaller, just change the settings on your printer.
The powerpoint is so cute, because it is animated as you say the poem. The kids will want to keep saying it as they watch the pumpkins "act out" on the screen. There is a white background version of the poem that you can print, laminate and bind together to make a book for your Poetry Station.
There are several different ways to make the poem, and we have made each one. You can print the poem on bright blue xerox paper and create the pumpkins on it. You can cut dark blue 9" x 12" paper, glue the poem on it and create the pumpkins. Or...you can make it on a 12" x 18" dark blue construction paper, so the kids can write out the speech bubbles that the pumpkins are saying!
