Pumpkin Paloosa

Pumpkin Week is always a fun way to get ready for Halloween.  We begin by sorting the pumpkins in our classroom.  The kids did a great job thinking of different ways they could classify the pumpkins.

sorting by size
sorting by color
working on sorting by whether the pumpkin is real or not
We also had lots of fun using our play dough to decorate the pumpkins.
These pumpkins have hair.
We created our own pumpkin patch that was inspired by those made by Deep Space Sparkle.
We mixed red and yellow paint to create our orange pumpkins.
Next we used paper scraps to add faces and turn our pumpkins into Jack O Lanterns
I think our pumpkins have such great personalities! 
We loved the poem "This is Jack O'Happy"...this is Jack O'Mad
We used Mrs. Lee's Pumpkin Investigation to answer questions about our pumpkin before we carved it. We were surprised that it floated!


We voted on how we would carve our pumpkin.

We also measure "how many pumpkins tall" we each are.
