Do you read the story “How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin” by Margaret McNamara?

If you haven’t heard of it, click the LINK to see it on YouTube.

It’s not only an interesting read aloud that your students will really enjoy, but it’s absolutely perfect for exploring estimation and skip counting by 2s, 5s & 10s.

In the story, this is done via a small, medium & large pumpkin experiment, that Mr. Tiffin’s students take part in.

Skip counting is a standard most of us have on our “To Do” list, but finding interesting activities for practice can be challenging.

With that in mind, I designed a variety of fun, pumpkin-themed, skip counting activities; which will keep your students happily engaged, while they practice skip counting by 2s, 5s & 10s.

I use the story “How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin” as an excellent introduction to skip counting, then transition to the activities.

There’s a nice variety of pumpkin-themed worksheets, puzzles, and games that your students will enjoy, while they learn & practice this standard.

I’ve also included a pumpkin slider craft, and if your students are like mine, they will absolutely love making one.

There's also a variety of posters, including a "Look Who Can Skip Count By..." poster, which students get to sign, once they have mastered skip counting.

You can also give children a mini certificate of praise for their accomplishment. They come 4-on-a-page, in black & white as well as color.

As with the posters, there's a different one for skip counting by 2s, 5s & 10s.

Be sure and check the PREVIEW to see lots of samples.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a skippidy-dippidy fun time as you practice skip counting.
