These teachers are amazingly creative! Each year we hold a literary pumpkin contest and we think this year they have gone above and beyond. It will be hard to choose a winner for sure!
When it is Fall that also means it is Halloween-time and that is an especially fun holiday for all kinds of fun activities to be held about! You know what is a big part of both Fall and Halloween? Pumpkins!
They are a fun shape that can be incorporated into many different activities and it is especially fun when the time comes to discuss the pumpkin itself! Whether reading pumpkin-related books, doing pumpkin-themed crafts, art projects with pumpkins or even more choices there is a number of pumpkin-related guides that will help you start doing your own fun Pumpkin-themed activities!
“The Legend of Spookley The Square Pumpkin,” is a wonderful children’s book by Joe Troiano (the Author) and Susan Banta (the Illustrator). The book is all about learning how it is okay to be different and it is a wonderful message to teach.

One thing we often associate with the Fall is the fruit known as the Pumpkin! It is great fun during Halloween where we cut them up into Jack O’ Lanterns and they make delicious pies during Thanksgiving as well!
“Memory,” is a very popular game that involves matching images that are either exactly the same are a great deal alike. When playing, “Memory,” you turn over two cards and if they match then they stay flipped-over.
