Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate is an all-time favorite for kids. We’re incorporating a hands-on activity and math to retell the classic poem/song with these free printable five little pumpkins.
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
This is a fun video you can show them to learn the song. It goes through it twice asking them to sing along the second time.
And this Pete the Cat Five Little Pumpkins version is the same story if you prefer to read the book.
I wanted the students to be able to retell the story so I made this free printable. You can use it in a bunch of different ways.
Print it out and retell the story as a class. Have the gate on an anchor chart, choose a student to come up and put the correct number on the gate, and so on until the story is complete.
Or print it out in black and white and make it into a craft project for your kids. Use a piece of construction paper and have them cut out the pumpkins and gate and then glue them onto the paper. They can add additional details if they’d like.
Or draw a stick and give 5 students the pumpkins. As a class, sing the song and as their number is called, have the student stand up with their pumpkin until the song is over.
Or you can laminate it and use it as a center for the students to practice counting and number sense one through five.
These cute little pumpkins make for such a fun and quick activity during this time of year. Let me know if you have any other ways you’re going to use them in your classroom!

I also use it with first grade for beginning middle and end of a story.
I must be doing something wrong as I click the green button but it will not print after it is downloaded. I just love this activity for Kinders.
