Pumpkin-Themed Music Lesson Ideas

Pumpkin Patch 100_9297
from Kam Abbott

Here are some pumpkin-themed lesson resources to use with your students this fall.

Use Hide the Pumpkins from Susan Paradis to help your students identify piano keys and to review the notes around middle C.

With Five Little Pumpkins from Beth's Notes, practice rhythms and counting.

Play Pass the Pumpkin and review whole notes, half notes, and quarter notes.

Play trick or treat and work through different rhythms .

No roundup of pumpkin lessons is complete without It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. While not strictly music-related, this would still be fun to use with your students.
