All About Pumpkins Literacy & Math Pack 
Get Yours HERE

October is a cool month for reading aloud books to small people who are learning 
how to read.  

Turn the pages! Watch the fun!  

October is filled with pumpkin spice, autumn  leaves, cool nights ...simply delightful!  



Here are some of my favorite books to share with children in October !  
How many seeds in a pumpkin?
Counting Pumpkin SeedsCombinations to 10
"How many seeds are in a pumpkin?" Mr. Tiffin asks his class as they gather around the big, medium, and small pumpkins on his desk.  Robert, the biggest kid, guesses that the largest one has a million seeds; Elinor, sounding like she knows what she's talking about, guesses the medium one has 500 seeds; and Anna, who likes even numbers better than odd ones, guesses that the little one has 22.  Charlie, the smallest boy in the class, doesn't have a guess.  Read to find out why? after reading this book to your child; you may want to do some pumpkin investigation...here are some pages that might help record the data...

Lots of engaging math and science activities. So many lessons to teach... float or sink?, height, weight, how many?, counting by 10's, estimation, size, science techniques, writing skills, reading to find out, information texts and comprehension checks...oh! my! 
and my favorite read aloud, ever!!! 
is...



The Big Pumpkin
by Erica Silverman

This one is a great book to teach sequence and if you are so lucky to have the recording, which is very, very hard to find...your kids will engage immediately...
great sing, song of words and kids can't help but join in when you read this one.  
Below is the youtube recording of this book...however, video stays on the cover of the book, so get the book, show the pages and listen along!!  If you have any children ages 3-93....they will LOVE this book


Enjoy your autumn days!  See you next time...
