    This is fun!
    Last year in October we went pumpkin collecting. I helped the twins pick out five pumpkins that we found on a pumpkin patch. Then we made nice hot pumpkin soup with them to eat at night. I also asked both of the children to count up the number of pumpkins too. I may do the same again this year when the time comes. This is my only unit study for October complete with fun activities like collecting pumpkins in spare time, counting them and sorting them according to size or colour for the math class, making a fact file about pumpkins in ELA, sketching them in a art lesson, researching the history of pumpkins online in history class, making a world pumpkin map for geography and cooking them in a lifeskills class.
    This year I may even make a pumpkin costume for the twins to wear on Halloween night. For music, Iā€™m not sure what I will do apart from my silly pumpkin song. But math and pumpkins go hand in together.
