Pumpkins Pumpkins everywhere!

Pumpkins in the cornfields,
Gold among the brown,
Leaves of rust and scarlet
Trembling slowly down;
Birds that travel southward,
Lovely time to play;
Nothing is as pleasant
As an autumn day!
(Carmen Lagos Signes)

(Water colour activity: Sit children at their art table. Place a damp piece of watercolour paper in front of them. Tell this poem 3 times. Then place a small amount of red and some yellow water colour paint infront of them. Give them a paint brush. Retell the poem as they begin to work)
