Pumpkin Math Freebie

Hi friends! It is Katie from Queen of the First Grade Jungle here!

I absolutely LOVE Fall!

Colorful leaves, football, tailgating, crisp air, and hoodie sweatshirts- fun, fun, fun!

As a teacher, I also love all the fun teaching opportunities that spring up when the holidays come around!

Our math program called for us to begin subtraction this week (eek!) so my team felt like we needed to pull out the big guns to make a lasting impression.

So I created the Pumpkin Math Book:

I put together a few math centers that could be completed with your pumpkins (because I know MANY of you will be going to the pumpkin patch)!

Here is how they worked in my room:

1. We put pumpkins in order by how much they weighed.
2. We used yarn to figure out the circumference of the pumpkin (then we used cubes to see how long our yarn was).
3. We wrote addition stories about pumpkins.
4. And our favorite- we used the pumpkins to see how long we were.
 When the students came to me for some small group instruction, we used those VERY yummy pumpkin candies on ten frames.

I also have an addition facts freebie linked on my blog if you want to head over and check it out!

I hope you found something useful :)


  1. GREAT ACTIVITIES!!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love this time of year, but living in AZ the weather is so hot I forget that's it's even fall until I see all these pumpkin posts showing up! Can't wait to use this after fall break!

    One, Two, Three: Math Time!

  3. That looks very cool and creative! :}
