Some Pumpkin Fun

     Our schedule has been way off the past two weeks because of early release days, conferences, pictures, and Fall Festival!  Whew!  That makes me tired just thinking about all of it!  I don't have many pictures because there are so many things that we have started but not completed, and I have been out of the room quite a bit with conferences.  I thought I would put up a few pumpkin activities and save our Fall Festival pictures for Halloween.  Hopefully, Monday I will be able to put up our parts of a pumpkin, pumpkin investigation and our Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater projects.  You have a lot to look forward to! :)

This pictures just makes me laugh! :)  I think she really enjoyed finger painting her pumpkin!  They mixed red and yellow to make orange, painted the pumpkin, and then colored the leaves and stem.

They also put together a sentence. A pumpkin is orange and round.

Pumpkin Glyph

Because of short week last week we had not finished up one of our scarecrow activities.  We are learning about syllables and how many claps are in a word.

Pumpkin Literacy Center-  They pulled letters out of the pumpkin and then matched them to the large pumpkin.  Once they found the matching letter, they marked it on their sheet.  You can get it here.

We read about the life cycle of a pumpkin and then cut out the pieces to make their own.  They painted paper plates orange for the pumpkin and drew on a face to make it a jack-o-lantern.  It did not show up very well in this picture!

    More pumpkin and Halloween fun to be up soon!
