*****UPDATE: I just re-uploaded my unit. I completely forgot to add the labels!! Oops! If you already purchased it, please go back and redownload!****

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you my newest unit now available at my TPT store!

I also just started this mini-unit/book study with my kindlers and they are LOVING it!!! It goes with one of my all time favorite "Halloween-themed" books, The Biggest Pumpkin Ever by Steven Kroll.
Here's a peek:

One of the items in this unit is a Pumpkin Exploration.  I will be doing this with my little ones on Friday! Then, we will carve our pumpkin and start our decomposition science experiment.  They are BEYOND excited about getting to help carve out our pumpkin {i'm not going to lie...I'm a little excited too}!!

Here's a little art project we completed today.  Super simple but the kids love getting to paint!  We simply painted our pumpkins {I drew the outline for them}, then cut them out, glued them on, and added our sentence!  They did such a good job and the pumpkins really 'pop' on the black paper!

{did I REALLY expect the picture to work...I mean COME ON!!!!}

I just love this time of year, don't you?!
