I love using Sunny Day's Pumpkin Science investigation! You can find it here:

I also love Abby's Pumpkin Activities from The Inspired Apple. You can get them here:

The kids have such a great time with all of these activities. They kept us busy for our 3 days and the kids were engaged and excited!
The other day in my browsing of Facebook, I came across this video posted by Box Tops for easily counting 100 box tops.
They were very easily able to line the pumpkin seeds up in the boxes to begin counting by 100's. I gave each group a large sandwich bag and told them to begin counting by 100's. When they could no longer fill the grid, I told them to raise their hands and I brought around small snack bags and had them continue to count by 10's. Then, when they couldn't complete a ten anymore, they set the leftover ones to the side. Then they were able to easily count by 100's, 10's, and 1's! It was also much more manageable for both the kids and me! I highly recommend it!
Now thanks to the election we are now in the throws of teaching government. So much fun!
Until next time!
