Pumpkin Five For Friday

Yay for Friday!! Be sure to check out the other Five For Friday posts here:

This week was our first week back from break. Thankfully I was able to enjoy a bit of our break by going to a Kid's Museum with my girls. They loved it!! This was just a tiny bit of the awesome wonderfulness at this place!!

Now that we're back and it's fall, we started back with talking about the life cycle of a pumpkin. I found this great dry erase contact paper on clearance over break and decided to put a chunk on one of my cabinets so I had extra writing space when teaching. LOVE IT!!

One of the science projects we do every year is to cut a pumpkin open, fill it with dirt (don't take the seeds out!), and watch pumpkins grow inside of the pumpkin! My daughter helped me out by filling it with dirt this morning.

We're also talking about the parts of a pumpkin so my class made these super cute diagrams of a pumpkin with all the labeled parts!
Finally, although it took me a couple days, I was even able to make a little something this week. The Kindergarten team at my school is wonderful and I tend to go to them when I have questions (I teach Pre-K so it only makes sense to ask the grade my kiddos will be moving up to). So, when they started talking about needing some new rhyming activities, I jumped on it and created my 72 page rhyming packet! In fact, it will be on sale until tomorrow night! Just click the picture above to take a look at it.
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I love your pumpkin diagram! SO cute. And I have always wanted to try the dirt in the pumpkin idea. Love that. Glad you had fun with your girls, too. It looks like fun! Have a great weekend!

  2. We have our pumpkin week coming up next week and I'm going to do the pumpkin labeling for sure. So cute! And the growing a pumpkin inside of a pumpkin is a must do too!! Thanks for sharing.
