What to do:

  3. Ask your child to match the black shapes that you cut out with the pre-drawn pumpkin faces.  As they matched them, name the shapes together.
  4. The back of the pumpkins are blank. Allow your child to use it as a canvas to create pumpkin faces with all the shapes!  Again, name each of the shapes together.
  5. Count out the total number of each black shape and graph it on paper together.
  6. Discuss which shape had the most, which the least, and which the same amount or equal number of shapes.
