Ways to Use the Picture Book- Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere- in Your Classroom

Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere is a book that is easy to listen to with engaging illustrations.  The author uses jack-o-lanterns to show facial recognition, direction, animal recognition and the fun parts of Halloween. Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere would be an excellent book to use with special learners or ESL kids because of phrases that repeat like "Pumpkin wet and pumpkin dry... Pumpkin happy and pumpkin sad." This book works for classroom or home. This is a Halloween "Friendly" book suitable for small children. My review of this book gives it 5 Stars

What I liked about this book is that there are so many things that you can do with it.
You can work on emotion recognition
You can have a pumpkin parade
You can enjoy music and movement with the pumpkin boogie beat
You can identify the animals carved on the pumpkins.

Here are some pumpkin coloring pages
