Pumpkin, pumpkin...

     We had a great pumpkin unit last week! We did so many great lessons and activites but unfortunately I didn't take hardly any pics!! I guess I was too busy teaching and anticipating Fall Break! 
We measured pumpkins, counted pumpkins, estimated with pumpkins, and started adding with our 10 frames!! We studied the life cycle of a pumpkin, did a close read with pumpkin poetry, and compared fiction and non- fiction pumpkin texts!! We also learned some fun new pumpkin songs, made super cute pumpkin shirts ( thsnks so much Aletha Thomas), and ended the week with a field trip to the pumpkin patch!! Not to mention made a super yummy pumpkin snack: Pumpkin Fluff!! Wow!! It makes me tired just writing about it!! Lol!! Hope your family had a great Fall Break!!

An Apple A Day

     An apple a day makes for a busy week in kindergarten!! We had a super fun week with a great Johnny Appleseed Unit!! It included counting, color words, measuring apples, writing and of course Johnny Appleseed!! We also made homemade applesauce on Friday but I had ZERO time to take pics of that fun activity- too many cooks in the classroom for any pics ;) .  

Roll and count out the "apples".


This was our "How Many Apples Up On Top."  They turned out do cute!! They cut their picture out and glued it on top and wrote the numbers on the apples!! They loved it!!!



Our Johnny Appleseed sticker pages! Kids always love these!!!

Johnny Appleseed writing and craft!!
