Pumpkin math fun- October idea.Buy a large class pumpkin. Themed learning maybe: writing prompts with pumpkin, read about pumpkins, dress pumpkin up as book characters and do math problems related. Buy another smaller pumpkin and find the difference in height. At the end of the month, take out and count the seeds, etc.
this would be great in the classroom - make the graph on the carpet and have your students work together to find the shapes -or- colors, things that start with letters (A- alligator, airplane, apple...), number groups (2 cars, 2 legos, 2 dolls...)
