One activity was the retelling of the book Big Pumpkin. I love this book, it's one of my favorite Halloween books. I bought some masks from Oriental Trading, got out my fake pumpkin and fake vine and we put on a little show. I read this book many times so the kids would be very familiar with it. As I mentioned, I love this book and I love the illustrations showing each character trying to pull the pumpkin off the vine. One of my little smartie pants burst my bubble as she yelled out, "why don't they just cut the vine with a knife?". Ummmmm.....cuz then we wouldn't have a story. She ended up playing the character of the witch and did a great job.

We did the pumpkin activities and then we did a little graphing. Tiffani at Time 4 Kindergarten made a graph for Target's spooky fruit chews. The kids loved it and so did I. I love those fruit chews.
