5 Leaves
Five red leaves, five and no more (hold up 5 fingers).

The caterpillar ate one, now there are four (thumb down).

Four red leaves, that's easy to see.
Along came a rainstorm, now there are three. (index finger down).


Three red leaves, nothing much to do.
A big wind blew, now two!
(middle finger down).
Two red leaves, that's not much fun.

I glued one on my paper
(ring finger down)

Now there is one. (hold up pinky)

Hang on, pretty red leaf!
Your branches won't break.
You're one less leaf for me to rake!
Five Little Pumpkins

The first one said,

The second one said,
"There are witches in the air.?
The third one said,
"But we don't care.?
The fourth one said,
"Let's run, let's run!?
The fifth one said,
"Isn't Halloween fun??
Then Woooooo went the wind
And OUT went the lights.
And five little pumpkins
rolled out of sight.
