P is for Pumpkins

Wow!  Has it been a long time since I posted last!  (There might be a series of posts coming up so I can catch up....!)

The last two weeks of October we learned about pumpkins.

Science: The Life Cycle of a Pumpkin
 Marble Painting the smaller pumpkins


 Cutting the seed out


 Sequencing the pumpkin cycle together.  Seed, leaf, blossom, small green pumpkin, medium yellow pumpkin, and finally large orange pumpkin

Magnet Center:
Making pumpkin faces.

Art Project:
Mixing red and yellow to make orange.  I told the kids that I ran out of orange paint so what colors could we use?  The inspiration for this project came from here.

Paper pumpkin.

Journal: (for the 3s)
Fine motor to pull stickers off and place on circle, then trace.
