Tot School: Pumpkins

Kayleigh is 44 months old



This week our theme was pumpkins!!!  We love them.  Especially eating them.  We started our week with a trip to the local farm to get some pumpkins.



For the rest of the week we did a lot of pumpkin activities from Two Teaching Mommies and Confessions of a Homeschooler

While waiting for sissy at music school, Kenzie made faces on the pumpkins.  I just made that out of felt.


Instead of magnets or do-a-dots, we decided to use stickers on this page.


She made a “Pumpkin Colors” book and colored each page the correct color.  And she stayed in the lines for the most part.   She also did acColor-by-letter:  This time she mostly wanted to scribble all over the page.  Sigh…



A pumpkin patch number “maze.”


A pumpkin jumble game that I found HERE.  We used pattern blocks and our Education Cubes to play.


Pumpkin “spelling”: She named all the letter for me, although she refused to do it order. lol


Which one is different?  She did awesome on this and didn’t even ask for help.


Pumpkin Vine Measuring.  This was the first time we’ve done anything like this.  She did a really good job and seemed to like it.  At least until the next time we try to do it. lol


She did a pumpkin number puzzle and practiced her writing skills by following the line.

Her favorite activity, which she’s been waiting for a whole year too do again, was…

Candy Corn Math!!  We sorted, patterned, graphed and tasted. 


All you need is a bag of Autumn Mix candy and my printables.  Click on the picture below to download them.

3D Feel and Find, We took it to music school with us this week.

We’re going to continue on with more pumpkin fun next week. We had so much going on last week that we didn’t get to the fun stuff involving actual pumpkins and crafts.  It was all we could do to get this much done.   I hope to stay home more next week.
