Bilingual Wednesdays- Pumpkins

October is the ideal month to learn about pumpkins, orange, scarecrows and crows either in English and Spanish.

My goals for this lesson:
To introduce and practice numbers 1 to 4 in Spanish
To relate numbers in their oral and written form

I introduced numbers 1 to 4 in Spanish while counting pumpkins and enjoy this funny poem in the flannel board.
4 calabazas divertidas
4 calabazas divertidas
crecieron en la granja
el granjero vino y tomó 1
entonces quedaron 3.

More verses:
 3 calabazas divertidas
2 calabazas divertidas
1 calabaza divertida

After counting our pumpkins using the flannel board set, we counted plastic pumpkins using counting mats.

I also made these pumpkins mats to use them as big counters. 

Then I invited children make funny pumpkins using their favourite art supplies.
