5 Little Pumpkins!

Day 3 of the week - The theme this week is pumpkins. The letter of the week is O, o and the number of the week is 13.
Project - 5 Little Pumpkins - Connor traced a pumpkin cookie cutter 5 times. Then, he colored each pumpkin orange and drew faces on each pumpkin. We based this project off of the song and book Five Little Pumpkins Illustrated by Dan Yaccarino. We sang the song and Connor decided what kind of face each of the five pumpkins would have. As a finishing touch he drew a witch over the top of the third pumpkin, wrote the numbers 1-5 underneath each pumpkin and wrote the title 5 Little Pumpkins at the top of the paper. Materials Needed - white paper, pumpkin cookie cutter, orange, green and black markers.
