Five for FRIDAY!

Happy FRIDAY!!!  I'm sharing a few things from my week!  Some of them might be familiar if you follow my instagram account!  I should have taken a picture of the Princess Jasmine sticker one of my students gave me first thing this morning - so cute!!  Be sure to link-up with Doodle Bugs Teaching with your Five for Friday post!

We did a math activity using candy corn and pumpkins!  Who doesn't love to "eat their math"?!?!?!  I did a problem that I had shared about in a previous post that you can check out here!  The kids did great with this!
We read How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? and then used ten frames to find how many seeds were in our pumpkin!  There were 710 seeds!  I definitely recommend buying this book if you want to do this activity - it is PERFECT!
Yes, those are Elf on the Shelf bandaids!!!  Target has them in their $1 section!  Looks like our class Elf is going to be bringing some bandaids!  I posted some of the ways I used my Elf on the Shelf in my classroom last year and even included a *freebie* for you on TpT!  Check it out here!
We tasted pumpkin products today - pumpkin bread (really muffins), pumpkin pie, and pumpkin seeds!  Then we graphed which pumpkin product we liked the most.  Pumpkin bread was the WINNER!!!!  We read The Runaway Pumpkin before doing the activity (such a cute book)!  I used the graph from my Pumpkin Activities Pack for this lesson!   
I pulled out my Native American and Pilgrim books to use with my students!  We have started discussing long ago and today and this fits perfectly with our long ago and today Thanksgiving lessons.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!   post signature


  1. Hi Heather - Ahh! I need those elf on the shelf band aids... and even better that they are in the dollar spot. Thanks for the tip. :o)

  2. I hope they still have those band aids at Target, I NEED those! We also read "How many seeds in a pumpkin?" before counting our seeds, I agree it is perfect. I love your idea of using the 10 frames, much better than just making piles of 10 like we did. I have filing that idea for next year. Thanks for sharing!

    Luv My Kinders
