Pumpkin Jack

This week we are focusing on pumpkins/bats/spiders in honor of Halloween. The book for the week is Pumpkin Jack by Will Hubbell. I am LOOSELY using this unit from one of my favorite resources, Homeschool Share.

It will take us more than one week to get through everything, simply because of all the other things we have scheduled this week. We didn't really start it until yesterday, because I didn't pick the book up from the library until Tuesday. The book is adorable. Kiddo loved it, and already has plans for planting his own pumpkin seeds and sharing the pumpkins with others when they are ready. He doesn't know my poor history with gardening....

Today we will focus on the applied math activities as well as the language activity of description, mostly because we need to get the pumpkins carved and those activities will be trickier once that happens.
