Spookley the Square Pumpkin

This is the best Halloween Story!!!
Make a cube pumpkin and then have the students write about what makes them "unique" like Spookley.
from familycraft.com
Here are some cute square pumpkins made out of milk cartons from kids and Gitter.

I found these great shape connection worksheets online to go with the book.

We got to know the shapes before sorting them by playing with them a little bit. I would say the cube is first, the cone is last, the circle is inbetween the square and the cone. In what place is the square? We played like this for a little while to get them comfortable with the shapes and then sorted them.
