A hint: you’ve probably seen them cropping up in your neighborhood, as they are in high demand at this time of year. Pumpkins, of course! There are pictures of pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns lining the halls of my school, and I just might have to go pick one out this weekend. Here’s a song my students and I have been singing lately all about these fall fruits:

What’s big and orange,
And grows on the ground,
And has a shape that’s nice and round?
Every fall we pick one out,
Have you guessed what I’m talking about?

Pumpkin, Pumpkin on the vine.
This one’s yours, and this one’s mine.
Let’s take it home and soon it will be
A jack-o-lantern for all to see!

Pumpkins are also good to eat,
Pumpkin pie is such a treat.
We’ll roast the seeds and we’ll have a snack.
I need another pumpkin, so let’s go back.

Pumpkin, Pumpkin on the vine.
This one’s yours, and this one’s mine.
Let’s take it home and soon it will be
A jack-o-lantern for all to see!

And there you have it! You just might find yourself humming this cheerful little tune as you pick out your own pumpkin in the next couple of weeks.
