Halloween is on its way!
Today is Finger Play Fun Day and we will be sharing 5 Little Pumpkins.
My students have been enjoying this finger play all month long.  I made 5 jack-o-lantern finger puppets to add to the fun!
There are different variations for this finger play but here is my favorite!

Here are the words I like the best:

5 Little Pumpkins

5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, "Oh my its getting late."
The second one said, "I hear a noise."
The third one said, "It's only some boys."
The fourth one said, "Let's run. Let's run."
The fifth one said, It's Halloween fun."

Then oooooo went the wind and out went the lights.
And away rolled the pumpkins on Halloween night.

Carolyn, at Wise Owl Factory, made an awesome skip counting Power Point with Pumpkins!  Count by ones, twos, threes, fives,
and tens!  The children might watch silently the first time through and then count aloud while watching the second time!
