Pumpkin Fun with Free Resources

We had a busy week full of pumpkins! It is fun to mix pumpkins is with the Turkeys and the Scarecrows. In October, we read Spookley the Square Pumpkin. This month, We read Spookley, A Family to Be Thankful For. In Eureka, we have been talking about shapes so this has been a great supplement to the curriculum.

At the end of this post, I have a fun FREE Resource for you all.

 This Pumpkin Shapes Unit got a recent update. If you previously purchased it, you get the update for FREE!


This is a cute new addition where students take a card, find the shape, and color it.


My kids had so much fun with this Pumpkin Shape book. We did it in small group and I easily assessed who knew the names of their shapes.


This craft...could it be any cuter???? There are 8 different shapes students can choose from to make their pumpkin. Again, a fun way to asses if students can describe their shape. 



Clip cards make for a simple center, but did you know squeezing clothespins is a GREAT fine motor activity for students? Be sure to check out my Pumpkin Shapes Unit to find more activities.



Have you seen my Math Centers, Exit Tickets, and Printables? You get 4 Centers, 4 Printables, and 16 Exit Tickets. These will make you Math planning so much easier. You can find the Pumpkin Math Centers, Exit tickets and Printables HERE. Save Money, Buy the Bundle HERE.



 I have Hp InstaInk, so I print in color all the time, but I know a lot of teachers do not have that luxury. All of these centers are in color and black and white.



All the centers come with 4 different Exit Tickets. I have students complete the Exit Ticket at the end of centers on Fridays. I have 4 different ones so I know kids are not cheating. I love how Exit tickets let me know if a student has mastered a skill or is still working on. Plus, it is a great way to communicate student progress to parents.


All the centers come with printables. These are great for independent practice, homework, sub tubs, or morning work. I love hands on centers in Kindergarten. I think they are essential, but I also think ti is important for students to get used to paper pencil.



Ready for your FREE Math resource??? This game works on number sense to 10. Students can roll or spin, and cover numbers up to 10. You can get this FREE Resource HERE.
