Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate

Song Video


Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;
The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late".
The second one said, "There are witches in the air".
The third one said, "But I don't care".
The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run".
"Wooooooo" went the wind,
And out went the lights.
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.

Another lesson to use for this song is a lesson about colors. Teachers can have students make each pumpkin a different shade of orange or yellow or even try to use five very different colors. This will help children learn the colors visually.

Five little pumpkins
Sitting on a gate
The first one said,
Oh, my, it's getting late
The second one said,
There are witches in the air!
The third one said,
But we don't care!
The fourth one said,
Let's run and run and run!
The fifth one said,
I'm ready for some fun!
OOOOOOOH, went the wind
And OUT went the light (clap on out)
And the five little pumpkins
Rolled out of sight.

Hot lady teaching this. (love her lips, eyes, everything, haha). I went searching for this song as I'm in an nostalgic mood. My elementary school music teacher taught us this back in the early 1980's. I miss those days. :(

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100 positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks dedfedkdacde

listen ton a song called: Courtesy of the Red White and Blue: such a good song. And it reminds u of the people who gave their lives up for us just to be here.USA."American girls, and American guys, will always stand up salute We"ll always recognize. When we see OLD GLORY fly'n theres alot of men dead for us to sleep at night when we lay down our heads.MY daddy served in the army and lost his right eye. He flew a flag in our yard tilll the day that he died." Thank alll the men and women who lost their lives just for us. we pray for you.
