“How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin” – by Margaret McNamara is another super fun Thanksgiving themed book. The story is really about pumpkins and pumpkin seeds. Students really engage in guessing how many seeds is in each pumpkin, skip counting practice is a part of the story, and they even learn some scientific facts about pumpkings. In this 3 week stretch from Halloween to Thanksgiving, this is a definite read in my 1st grade class. Have Fun!
