Easy pumpkin face craft


Materials: Felt, scissors, pumpkin, velcro and very creative children!

We had fun making a face for our pumpkin. With this activity children can review/reinforce knowledge of parts of the face in Spanish:

Los ojos (eyes) , la nariz (nose), la boca (mouth), la cara (face)

Place the different parts on the pumpkin while you ask your students the questions about them: 
¿Qué es?
¿Dé que color es?

This activity also supports one of the songs (traditional) we have on one of our music CD’s, “Jump into Spanish which has the following lyrics: 



Mi cara
Mi cara redonda tiene ojos y nariz,
Tiene una boca para cantar y reir,
Con mis ojos veo todo,
con mi nariz hago achis,
con mi boca como ricos helados de maní.
My face
My round face has eyes and a nose,
It has a mouth for singing and laughing,
I see everything with my eyes,
I sneeze with my nose,
And with my mouth I eat yummy peanut ice cream.

Have fun singing in Spanish!

Halloween Song: Cinco Calabazas


This song  is perfect to review feelings and emotions. I love teaching it to my second graders.
I cut out five paper pumpkins so the children can show their faces (see picture above). They each pick a feeling in the song, while the rest of the class chants/sings the song. Each child has to show the face that matches the feeling they picked. They love doing it over and over again and have a lot of fun seeing their friends’ facial expressions.



Cinco calabazas sentadas en su casa,

una calabaza se siente muy cansada.

Cuatro calabazas sentadas en su casa,
una calabaza se siente asustada.

Tres calabazas sentadas en su casa,
una calabaza se siente enojada.

Dos calabazas sentadas en su casa,
una calabaza se siente muy frustrada.

Una calabaza sentada en su casa,
una calabaza se siente sorprendida.

Cinco calabazas sentadas en su casa,
y cuando sale el sol se sienten muy felices.
