Today after school Christine, Sara, and I planned our first week of our Pumpkins theme, which starts next week. One of our favorite activities to do the very first week of the theme is one called Pattern Block Pumpkins. We usually hang these finished projects on our doors or outside our classroom doors to decorate for the theme.
We've found that over the years, students need more and more visuals to help them complete tasks, so last year we put together some step by step directions for the pocket chart so that students can follow the pictures and simple directions to complete each step of the project. We also made a one-pager to post as the "learning target".
HERE is the Pattern Block Pumpkins activity that you can find at our TPT store:
