Pumpkin Day

We have been learning all about properties of matter in science and learning about pumpkins! On Friday we brought it all together and had Pumpkin Day! I send this note home asking each child to bring a pumpkin. I sent a simple note home asking for pumpkins.

We will spent the whole day learning about our pumpkin!

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?

  1. Wow! I’d like to pick up some of you teaching ideas. I’m a teacher of English language and sometimes I struggle to find interesting ways to learn language. Though I found some websites like this that helped me to come up with some ideas. Especially I like practical tips that one can find regarding writing essays.
