David, a music teacher and a blogger, shares his way of making children learn this poem. He says, ”The kids learn the poem with me as an echo activity. We take a while to learn this since so many of my little ones are ESL folks and need the extra repetition. We talk about it and make it a story. Why are they saying those things? Are witches real? Should they be worried? Then we add little, simple motions to go with each pumpkin’s words (i).”
