Who remembers that scene in Forrest Gump where Bubba is telling Forrest about all the wonderful things you can do with shrimp? That's how I feel about pumpkins and education! You can measure pumpkins, you can play with the insides of pumpkins, you can make pumpkin pancakes, you can draw a face on a pumpkin...I could go on forever! Enjoy some pictures from our seasonal pumpkin unit.
We started this unit off by exploring the life cycle of a pumpkin. After reading the poster together, Porter lines the 3 part cards up in order.
These themed tracing are quickly becoming a house favorite activity!
This little guy has been all about math this week! He's counting the grapes on his plate, the steps to our front door, and as you can see here- pumpkin seeds!
In addition to being all about math this week, Porter had also been all about puzzles! This 1:1 pumpkin seed correspondence puzzle was a big hit.
True story...we did this pumpkin counting activity for over an hour. And then Porter woke me up the next morning asking to do his "pumpkin math" so we did it again...for another hour. How can you say no a face like that?!?!? Check our Instagram feed for a video from this activity.
This was another hour long (in the total good way) activity! Youtube has some pretty cute Halloween kids song videos. We found a channel that had "5 Little Pumpkins" on it and listened while we tried knocking our own little "pumpkins" over.
One of our art projects this week was a clean version of examining the insides of a pumpkin.
While our sensory bin for the week was just the opposite!!!
Porter and I had loads of fun counting pumpkins, reading Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin, doing pumpkin mazes...I could go on forever! Click here if you would like to learn more about our full preschool homeschool curriculum or feel free to email me!
