I know we’re at the end of October, which in many households means the end of all things pumpkin, but over here we’re still going strong till Thanksgiving! So for those of you (like us) who are not ready for fall to end, or for future reference, I thought I’d share the Pumpkin Week homeschool unit we did this year.

If you know me, you know I love all things pumpkin, and I am so very proud to say that I’ve passed that love on to my two older children (Ellie is TBD). So naturally I *had* to dedicate an entire week this year towards learning about all things pumpkin. I am so glad I did, because it’s been such a sweet time with the kids. They’ve learned a ton, and it’s been such a joy to share something I love with them. Just saying, but if you have the heart and the ability to do so, homeschooling is seriously SO rewarding!
I decided to break this post into these sections:
I was able to find many of these books either at my library, on Hoopla or even as read alouds on Youtube! If you can’t afford to buy them, then those are great options to look into. Click here for links to each book, and to browse a few more titles that weren’t listed below. Epic! is also a great resource for reading, but it does require a subscription.
This is the part where you can really have fun! I love coming up with fun, hands on activities to do with the kids. When they are able to explore and (literally) dig in with their own hands, it makes a world of difference in retaining what they’ve learned.
Good luck with your future Pumpkin Week Homeschool Unit! I hope you have as much fun as we did with our favorite fall squash. :)
