We started this season with the story of the Hungry Dragon. Last week the children heard a simple, seasonal story about a pumpkin patch to learn about different animals that live in the pumpkin patch and what they do in the Fall.
Over in the pumpkin patch in the cool Autumn Sun.
Grows a Dear mother pumpkin and her little pumpkin one.
Grow says the mother, I grow says the one.
And they grow and they grow in the cool Autumn sun.
Over in the pumpkin patch is a stream so blue.
Graze a dear mother cow and her little cows two.
Moo says the mother, we moo say the two.
So they mooed and the mooed by the stream so blue.
Over in the pumpkin patch in the roots of a tree.
Lives a Dear mother mouse and her little mice 3.
Squeek says the mother, we squeek say the three.
So they squeek and they squeek in the roots of a tree.
Over in the pumpkin patch is a hole for a door.
Lives a Dear Mother Squirrel and her little squirrels four,
Gather says the mother, we gather say the four,
So they gather and they store in a hole for a door.
Over in the pumpkin patch in a tree so high.
Hangs a dear mother leaf and her little leaves five.
Fall says the mother, we fall say the five.
So they fall and they fall from a tree so high.
