Pumpkin Report

Character Pumpkin Book Report



I found this fun idea over at Simply Kinder and fell in love with it! I downloaded the freebie (Click the picture below and it will take you right to it!) and got my kids excited about it! I was so surprised by the pumpkins they brought to school! I had to take pictures of them with their pumpkins and the books they made them from to show you. They put a LOT of hard work into them! We displayed them in our classroom the whole week!

Monster Math

I found this on Pinterest and thought it looked like so much fun, I had to make it for my Kinders! We are learning doubles addition right now, so that's what I used it for, but the possibilities are definitely endless!!! 


Click on the picture below to go to "No Time For Flash Cards" to learn more about how she did it!





 Here are a few pictures of what my kids did at school They had so much fun with it!



(I purchased the small cookie sheets, google eyes & fun small containers [in the baby section] at Dollar Tree)

 
 You could use this idea with so many things....Turkeys with feathers for Thanksgiving, Cotton balls with Santa for Christmas....Hearts, 4-leaf clovers, Easter eggs! Such a great idea! 


Thanks for stopping by!

Pumpkins Pumkins Everywhere!

Wow this school year is FLYING by so quickly! It's already my 8th week! This week we are going to start our pumpkin unit and I'm so excited! I've looked online and found some GREAT freebies that we're going to use. I thought I'd put them all here in one place in case you're looking for some too!

I've listed the source of each activity, and if you click the pictures it will take you directly to it to get your own copy!




First up, 1plus1plus1equals1 has made a number word pumpkin page along with pumpkin simple addition:
  




Crayons & Curls made a fun ghost sequencing game....great for fine motor scissor practice!


Kindergarten Smiles has made a candy corn number puzzle freebie. I was so excited about this one, I've wanted these for a long time! My Kinders can't read quite yet, so I also added tally marks on the middle section for them to make it a little easier.


Kindergarten Lifestyle made a fun pumpkin memory game! My kids love memory games!



"In the Math Lab" has a fun Pumpkin Patch freebie, also great for strengthening fine motor along with putting numbers 1-10 in numerical order:





Little Miss Kindergarten is giving out some monster mash roll and color pages. My kids love these activities and will be excited about the fun monsters on these pages:



I hope you're able to use some of these fun FREEBIES and that your kids enjoy them!


Thanks for stopping by!
