October Monthly School-wide Challenge ~ Counting Pumpkins

We participate in monthly challenges as a whole school.  They are a great way to bring the school together!  We post data and results in a central location near the front office.  The challenge for October is called ~ Counting Pumpkins!  Each class received two books, one fiction and one non-fiction to keep and use in the classroom.  Literacy is really important in our building so whenever we can make a connection to literacy, we do!  Here are the two books each classroom received:

Each classroom also received a packet to help guide them through the challenge!  I found HUGE pumpkins at a local market and I got one for each classroom.  I also provided metal trays (the kind for a turkey) from the dollar store for each room to help reduce the mess!

Here is the link to the packet!  It only costs $2.50 for the 10 page packet.  Why not see if your school would be interested in doing their own school-wide challenge?
