This week our class explored everything about pumpkins. Together we labeled the parts of the pumpkin, talked about the life cycle of a pumpkin and then followed with an activity, and had a blast with our pumpkin investigation. With this activity the children had to use adjectives to describe the outside and inside of our pumpkin, measure how tall our pumpkin was with duplos, counted all the seeds, and then voted on the face we wanted for our pumpkin. It was such a fun week!

This week was our last week on the story Big Wolf and Little Wolf. One of the activities that the children had to share was why or why not they would have left the little wolf under the tree. We then led a group discussion about their thoughts on this question. I love when we have discussions like this! I then wrote all their answers on our white board so they could write out their answers. Our last activity the children were able to discuss how they felt about the story and then write about what they would like to do differently the following week.
I truly love this time of year. The perfect smell of fall, the beautiful colors we see all around us, and all of the really fun things our class gets to talk and learn about! This week we focused on Autumn. We had a blast heading outdoors together and collecting the different kinds of leaves we saw. As a group, we discussed the different types of leaves and then sorted them into different colors and created a leaf color graph. We also learned about chlorophyll and what happens to the tree and leaves as the different seasons go by. The children were also very excited to explore their leaves they found with leaf rubbings. It was a fantastic week!
