Pumpkins, Pumpkins & A Freebie

We have been busy doing pumpkins activities.
Here is our 'pumpkin man' glyph.

My little ones loved the poem Five Little Pumpkins.
This is a popular poem for pumpkins but
I changed the part about witches in the air to say leaves in the air.
Here is our craft activity we did to illustrate the poem. 

 We learned about the pumpkin life cycle.

 All these activities and more are in my Pumpkin unit 

We also did an activity for this little poem,
Pumpkin, Pumpkin. 
You can pick this up for free HERE

Happy teaching.

Starry Night ~ Vincent Van Gogh

I LOVE teaching my little ones about art and artists. I am not really an 'arty' person myself but there are many fantastic blogs with wonderful art ideas. 

I got this idea from Kristin Thomas at

You really should take a peek at her blog and be inspired.

Kristin did this activity with 2nd Graders but my little Kinder Van Goghs did a great job at creating their 'Starry Night'

Happy teaching.

Froggy's Halloween

My class love Froggy books and just quietly so do I!

Have you read Froggy's Halloween? 

 Froggy cannot decide on his costume for Halloween.  
He finally decides to dress up as the 'Frog Prince' much to the delight of the lovely Froggilina. 
But Froggy can't escape quick enough so he 
leapfrogs over his parents to escape.
My little ones are still laughing and asked me to read the book again.
It has been a favourite during free reading time.

I put together some activities as well as making the handsome 'Frog Prince'

If you are interested, you can see this at my TPT store HERE.

Happy teaching!
