Ways to Use the Pumpkin Sheets
Counting and Coloring
Your children will need to start by counting how many of each object there is on each pumpkin. You can have them color the pictures before they count if you like. Another option is to count as they color.
Children don’t have to color all the similar leaves the same color. It might make it easier for them to count them if they are the same.
The pumpkin sheets don’t say how your children to graph their data. They were left open-ended so you could decide how you want your children graph.
Children could color in the boxes beside pictures to show how many of each object they counted. That would give them experience with making a bar graph.
Your children could try to draw smaller version of each of the pictures in the boxes. That would give them a chance to create a picture graph.
