First and foremost, I need to say thank you.
Working at an air force school and teaching the children of the men and women of the armed forces is an amazing thing. The children that I teach sacrifice so much every day. I am so proud to be able to be their teacher. Hearing our students sing, “I’m Proud to Be an American” and “God Bless America” to their parents this week and seeing so many parents in the audience in uniform brought tears to my eyes. What an an amazing group of people. Thank you for your service and for protecting our freedom.
Now on to the goodies! I feel like October flew by! My camera has been stuck in my bag, and I haven’t taken it out! I have forgotten to take so many pictures – so here is what I have of our pumpkin unit!
The first few activities are from Julie Lee’s pumpkin pack:
The children picked a word, read it, and wrote it two more times.
This one was a bit tricky for some kiddos, so I gave them an alphabet strip to match the letters. They put each set in ABC order and then wrote the letters.
The children picked an item from the bucket and wrote the beginning sound on their pumpkin.
The children spun the spinner, counted the pumpkins and wrote the number on a pumpkin.
At this center, the children practiced matching the number word to the number.
The next pictures are activities that I created.
The children counted the dots (seeds!) on the pumpkin and matched the pumpkin to the correct number and wrote how many seeds were on that pumpkin.
Sequencing Teen Numbers
The children match the CVC word to the picture and then wrote the word again on their response sheet.
And the weekly pocket chart activity.
Lots of freebies for you today! I love reading all of your comments – leave a little note if you download!
