Pumpkin Picking Time! A Patch of Free Printable Activity Pages!

So it is October and we are finishing up our monthly  Fall Fun theme. We like to do a little Pumpkin Theme  at the end of the month. The kids love opening the pumpkins and digging into the slimy orange pulp. We do this as a class project and the kids get to help dig out and count the seeds!

I always set up a Pumpkin Detective Center in our Science Area so the kids can explore the pumpkins further. We have scales and magnifiers so they can weigh them and get a closer look. I set out a variety of pumpkins from minis to large sized pumpkins. We also include some different gords for them to check out too. The kids love this center.

 I created some simple printables in my Pumpkin Detectives Mini-Science Unit to help enhance the learning that happens in this center.

You can download the Pumpkin Detective Mini-Unit for FREE from My Teachers Pay Teachers Store!

You might also want to check out my 5 Little Pumpkins Take Home Sheet, 5 Little Pumpkin Song Chart, and my Pumpkin Seed Counting Activities (Scroll down to find free printable pumpkin activities on the website)

Apple Picking Time!

We are starting an APPLE theme this week. This week will be filled with lots of fun Apple Investigations, making Apple Sauce, and doing Apple Taste Tests. One of our favorite songs is Five Red Apples Hanging in a Tree. I like to send home activity pages that help extend the learning to home so I created this take home sheet. You can download The Five Red Apples Activity Page for FREE from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store!

Celebration! 500+ followers on TPT ~ Free Storage Supply Labels!

Oh my goodness... I have been soooo busy I didn't notice right away that My Teachers Pay Teachers followers had reached 500! Now I realize in the grand scheme of TPT 500 might not be a lot but to me it is pretty great! So to celebrate I just added some Free Storage Supply Labels. I created these for our early childhood storage room so everyone could easily find where materials were stored. I have no idea if anyone else will find them useful but they are FREE to anyone who wants to use them for anything. If you do use them I would love to hear how they were helpful to you! Enjoy!
