Lots of Pumpkiny Fun!!

We have been so busy this week learning all about pumpkins!  We have learned a cute song, read pumpkin books, played pumpkin games, toasted and ate pumpkin seeds for a snack and made pumpkin crafts! The books that we have been reading this week show how a pumpkin grows from a seed to sprout, then plant and a pumpkin. We got a pumpkin for the class and scooped out the insides so the children could see and feel what is inside a pumpkin.  We have been making little books and sequence cards that illustrate that process and instead of playing Hot Potato, we played Pass the Pumpkin and the children passed the pumpkin around.  We also ended the week with our Fall party.  We had a great time, we made a ton of cute keepsake crafts, played musical chairs and had a yummy lunch!  Thank you to all of the parents who brought in food and helped out in the classroom!
