Well, we are nearly half way through October already – wow!  time for. Pumpkin Chant! As the leaves turn color and fall off the trees my attention has turned to all things PUMPKIN! Pumpkin picking, pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes and: Pumpkin Poems and Rhymes!

Today I have for you, The Pumpkin Chant (by Jane Wills Johnstone). This Pumpkin Chant is a simple, fun pumpkin poem that’s easy to keep the rhythm to –  any way that you want!  In this video I just slap my legs to keep the time with the rhyme, and in it we name all sorts of pumpkin things – pumpkin bread, pumpkin head, pumpkin cake, pumpkin shake! It’s super cute with a surprise Halloween-y ending. 🙂

I made a video of this very same  a couple of years ago. But with all the busy-ness of the online world and the flood of content lately, that video has definitely gotten buried. And – now that I’m having so much fun with my backgrounds and green screen – I figured I could make a new, better version. So – here it is!

When I introduce it I say that we are doing it twice – but I actually end up doing the chant three full times! So, without further ado, here it is the perfect Preschool Pumpkin Poem for October: The Pumpkin Chant. (The words are below as well)


Here are the lyrics (and they are in the video, as well):

Pumpkin Chant by Jane Wills Johnston

Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin bread,
Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin head.
Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin pies,
Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin eyes.
Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin cake,
Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin shake!
Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin stew
Pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin….

Feel free to use The Pumpkin Chant at home, in your classroom or in your virtual classes. And please share with anyone whom you think might enjoy it! The link to share is: https://youtu.be/FG9-HsE4gq8
