Where is the Pumpkin?

The weather is beautiful here!  It is in the middle 70's and the sky is blue!
I love weather like this... I wish it could stay this way all year long.
I have seen pumpkin patches everywhere.  I love all the activities that you can do with pumpkins in your classroom.  I bought a small pie pumpkin for my classroom as a decoration to go along with some mums and my children went crazy over it.  I can't wait until they see the large pumpkin I have for them! 
My kinders, especially my ESL students, could use more practice with positional words.  I used the same positional words as I did with my earlier book. They are taken right from our common core standards. This time the children can trace over each positional word if you would like.
Anyway, I hope you can use this and if you download, please leave a comment or think about following me!  Just click on the picture above! 
The graphics are from DJ Inkers! 

P.S.  I have some fun surprises coming for you soon, so stay tuned!

Love this. Thanks for sharing. I think we could use a review on positional words. We talked about them a couple of weeks ago or maybe longer than that. I'm so glad you've kept blogging. You're one of my favorite blogs to check out.

I love this. Positional words are so difficult for some of my kinders! This will be a great review for our quarterly math assessment!

What a perfect book for reviewing positional words!! This will be great to use during 9 week assessments! Thank you for sharing!

Thank you so much for sharing all of your awesome ideas and hard work!

I am so sorry! This is what happens when I am trying to do too many things at one time! The page says.. The pumpkin is between the basket and bird. Also, I noticed the word scarecrow wasn't showing up on one page but it was in my doc. I downloaded it to google docs again and now it works! Please let me know when I make mistakes and I will fix them! Thank you everyone!

I just posted a *free* pumpkin measurement activity on my blog. My kiddos always LOVE math using candy! =)

Great book! I love how you have the students trace the positional words on each page. I am going to incorporate it into my math lesson this week. Thanks for posting!

Wonderful!! I can't wait to use this next week. I have one question...How do I put the pumpkin behind the flowers? I was thinking of either cutting a little slit or making them color the pumpkin between the flowers so that it looks like it is behind. How did you do it? I LOVE this book! (and the scarecrow one too).

Anything that builds language and reading at the same time is a treasure. I love the way you leave it "open" for pumpkin manipulatives, and your graphics are super adorable!

This is so cute and will be very helpful for when I cover positional words in class next week.
