A Pumpkin Life for Me

I can't believe October is almost half-way over! Where is the time going?!? Next week we are gearing up to learn all about pumpkins! I wanted to give you a little sneak peek post in case you wanted to use any of these ideas in your classroom this month!

We have been learning all about properties of matter in science! On Friday, we will have Pumpkin Day! I send this note home asking each child to bring a pumpkin.

We will spend the whole day learning about our pumpkin!

Download this free My Pumpkin printable HERE. 

We will also learn about the pumpkin life cycle! Here are a few of my favorite books to read:

My students will also make their own book about the pumpkin life cycle. They will write one sentence to go with each picture of the pumpkin life cycle. 

Check out this book HERE. 

We may even plant a pumpkin seed! They grow super fast! : )

My students can also make a Story Book Pumpkin! Students decorate a pumpkin to look like a storybook character and our librarian displays them in the hallway. I love them so much!

One year I created this Pete the Cat Rocking in my School Shoes Pumpkin! 

To encourage my students to participate, I like to give out homework passes.

Pumpkin pie and pumpkin play-doh is always a hit too! What are your favorite pumpkin activities? Be sure to check out my Halloween/ Pumpkin Pinterest Board for more festive ideas!
