It's Pumpkin Week!

Well hello, I am in the thick of Parent-Teacher Conferences, but wanted to update about the fun things we are doing this week.

In the mornings, for literacy block we're doing lots of Fire Safety!

In the afternoons, we're learning about the life cycle of a pumpkin.  So of course we had to sample some pumpkin treats:

Mini pumpkin pies, baked in muffin tins!

Pumpkin cookies with maple icing.

Tasting some pumpkin products.
After we sampled the bread, pies, cookies, & seeds we took a Pumpkin Poll {voting for our favorite pumpkin product}.

On Thursday we are having Pumpkin Center Day, I asked for 7 volunteers & got 4...thank goodness for student teachers & para professionals!!
In the afternoon we are doing a fun fire experiment, a 10 frame seed counting book, &...if time, making a mini book/life cycle pumpkin envelope.

On Friday, I get a WORK DAY {whoot, whoot!}...then a 2 week, YES 2 WEEK Fall Break & I'm so excited.  When I return from break we'll be learning about nocturnal/diurnal animals {focus on bats, owls, & spiders}.  I will have pictures to share too:
  1. we have Pumpkin Book Projects to share - our Fall Break homework!!
  2. we have Owl Pellets to dissect with our 5th grade buddies
  3. we will have some fun Q-tip skeletons to make
Have a great rest of the week!
