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