Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins! {FREEBIE!}

Yippee!
It's a long weekend here in Canada because it's Thanksgiving.
I'm acutally hosting it tomorrow so I thought I would write a blog post today since tomorrow will be super busy (and I will be occupied eating the whole day!).
Thanksgiving in my house is pretty much the typical menu you probably all serve too....
turkey, mashed potatoes, yams, etc.
BUT.....I am from a typical Italian family and so my grandmother feels it's necessary to include homemade gnocchi in the mix!
(She will be taking care of making those!).
Can't wait for tomorrow!
 
On Tuesday, when we go back to work, we will be in full swing learning more about pumpkins.  We have already reviewed the lifecycle of a pumpkin and went to the Downey's Pumpkin Patch last week.
Most of the activities will come from my new unit just posted last night, Pumpkins Literacy and Math Activities.
My colleague, Mrs. Parisi and I worked together on it and I have to say, it's packed with lots of goodies!
It's on sale this weekend for only $8!
 
 Here is a freebie from our Pumpkin unit.
It's a roll and colour game.
Each student gets a worksheet and they take turns rolling a simple number die.  Whatever the number they roll, they colour in that many pumpkins.
The first one to the pumpkin patch wins!

I've also just posted, due to many e-mail requests, my Pumpkins Write the Room activity.
You can click on the picture above to view it.
 
***** THANKSGIVING SPECIAL! *****
 
This weekend only, until Monday at midnight, when you purchase my Pumpkins Literacy and Math Activities unit you will get my Pumpkins Write the Room activity for FREE!
 
Just leave me an e-mail at kindergartenteacher@rogers.com and let me know that you purchased the unit.
I will e-mail you with the Write the Room unit.

(If you already bought my Pumpkin Unit earlier today, please e-mail me and I will send you the Write the Room).

Stay tuned for lots of pictures of the Pumpkin Unit coming up this week.
 
Wishing everyone celebrating a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I got it! I also got your Write the Room set and I just have to say how much I LOVE it! I knew this was something I wanted to try,and I am so glad I did! Thank you for making it easy! I made sure I did a lot of pre teaching in the beginning but now, they all know what to do. The lower students are still using the picture cards and the higher students are seeing the words all around the room!

    I just wanted to say thank you!

    1. Oh, I'm so happy to hear that! I love it when kids go to a Literacy Centre and are actually working there! Independently! Horray!
