Today, for our pumpkin celebration, we read Pumpkin Time by Zoe Hall. Then we used yellow oil pastels to draw jack-o-lantern faces on our pumpkins. We washed over the pumpkins with orange watercolor paint so the jack-o-lantern faces shined through and seemed to light up.
One of our favorite poems to recite is:
"Pumpkin, pumpkin, round and fat,
Turn into a jack o lantern, just... like... that!"
One of the songs we love to sing is from Sing a Song of Seasons by Mary Thienes Schunemann:
"Jack o lantern, jack o lantern, how your light it does shine.
Sitting up upon the window, how your light it does shine.
You were once an orange pumpkin sitting on a pumpkin vine.
Now you are my jack o lantern, and your light it is mine."
