Exploring Pumpkin Life Cycles in Kindergarten! Science, math, literacy, and fine motor skills are included in this week’s lesson plans.
Pumpkin Life Cycles
We start by reading some of my favorite books about pumpkins! (affiliate)
But the book we look closely at for this set of lesson plans is Pumpkin Circle. This is part of our Guiding Readers units.
We examined our schema, then created this pumpkin lifecycle chart together.
Students then made their own.
We labeled parts of the pumpkin.
Then did a little informational writing!
We sorted images by singular or plural. Such a simple way to introduce this concept to kindergartners.
Fine Motor Skills
These are fun ways to help students with their fine motor skills. First, they take a spin on the pumpkin spinner.
Then they trace! You can find this activity HERE.
This is a math activity that also reinforces fine motor skills. You can also find this activity in the same resource by clicking HERE.
Art and Following Directions
This is a directed drawing activity done with water colors! We love these pumpkin blossoms! This is also part of our Guiding Readers units.
We love the Pumpkin Patch song and video that is included in October’s Music and Video File!
Sight Words and Literacy Stations
How cute is this?! I found this idea HERE.
This is from THIS stamping unit! There are many different math and literacy options for each theme.
YUM! I love Rice Krispie treats! You can find these HERE.
