Goodbye October...Hello November

We had a great time on the last day of October.  We enjoyed our annual Kindergarten Scarecrow Parade and made several yummy treats.  We began The Ugly Pumpkin Literacy and Math Unit which you can find here . A story about acceptance and the transition from Halloween into Thanksgiving.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Spider----Yummy

The Ugly Pumpkin is a sweet rhyming story.  It correlates with The Ugly Duckling.  We read both books and did several activities.  First we started with the "best project ever" (out of the mouth of babes) by painting our Ugly Pumpkin...poor little squash!  Then we made text to text connections and text to self connections.   The Unit also includes, ABC Order for a center, Thanksgiving word search, text to text connection page, text to self connection page, How to make The Ugly Pumpkin, A Pumpkin/Squash Doubles matching math game and recording sheet, bulletin board ideas and more reading connection ideas.  Look for it on TPT for only $3.00.  I hope you enjoy this lil ol squash as much as I do. 
Happy Fall Everbody!
