The season of pumpkins is here. I have begun the process of pulling out pumpkin resources for my students, but I am waiting a while before I pull out the Halloween resources. Read on for some of our favorite pumpkin books and a math freebie!
There are so many great pumpkin books out these days. Here are some of our favorites.

I also love to hear stories from my students about their adventures at local pumpkin patches. To help with the writing, I always pull out the pumpkin words list to add to their writing tubs.
Pumpkin Math Freebie
A favorite math station I add to my math tubs is an addition pumpkin sum sort. It’s pretty simple, you just buy those little treat pumpkins (I have had these for years). You write a sum on the pumpkins. Next, write number sentences onto popsicle sticks, and then the kids sort them into the correct pumpkins. To add an element of difficulty, you could put a sand timer into the tub.
I made this recording sheet to go with mine this year. Feel free to grab yours here.
I have scoured Pinterest for pumpkin ideas. Some of the pins are from fall parties, but you can use some of the ideas in a classroom!
