Here are some of my favorite October ideas that I am excited to share!

Scary Pumpkin Patch Bulletin Board
This is a "scary" pumpkin patch that I made with the students this week, using Miss Kindergarten's Pumpkin Glyphs!

Pumpkin Letter Hunt
This ideas comes from Little Miss Glamour Goes to Kindergarten.  You put letters in a trick-or-treat pumpkin, have the kids pull out a letter, and then stamp that letter on their paper! I am SO doing this with my kids...

We made these Frankensteins that A Cupcake for the Teacher made.  My kids kept saying "this is so much fun" while we were making them!

This is a math center that I made for the students to practice placing fall manipulatives in the squares to represent numbers 1-10.  These have been a hit with the little ones!

Counting with Little Jack-O-Lanterns

This is another counting center that I have for math time.  The students read the number on the pumpkin, and place that many little ants inside.  I place them on a cookie sheet, so we don't have ants all over the carpet. :)

Here are the sweet bloggers that I want to BOO!!!

  2. Such great ideas; love the little ants in the pumpkins! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Michelle! Thanks for BOO-ing me. I'll have to do some Halloween activities this week and post some pictures. Thanks for the fall counting frames. I'm going to pick them up for one of little firsties who is still having so much trouble with one-to-one correspondence. Hopefully she'll think it's fun practice and I can get her to be more confident.

  6. I really like the pumpkin letter idea. I just bought a cauldron so will probably use that. I also do the ant one with jack-o-lanterns and pumpkins, except I have spiders. I also have the kids put them in using tweezers to help with their fine motor.

  7. Thanks for the shout out...and the other great ideas. I'm glad your kids like the pumpkin letters!! :)
