Five Little Pumpkins

The Five Little Pumpkins is a favorite traditional rhyme for Halloween all over the United States. Here is a PowerPoint slideshow I have made for this rhyme using D. J. Inkers graphics. You can download the PowerPoint or view it online at Slideshare. I have also made a printable blackline little book. Terms of Use

    Really cute, but is it slightly different words than the book? We haven’t started to read it just yet, but plan to.

      As with most traditional rhymes that are handed down orally, different people learn different words. This is the wording I’m more familiar with, although I typically hear the line, “there are witches in the air”, and I prefer the word “spooks” instead.

      Thanks so much! I can’t do a printable Very Hungry Caterpillar book because of copyright issues. According to Eric Carle’s website, educational materials based on his works cannot be distributed.
