Pumpkins! (day 2)

We continued our pumpkin theme today…it was a very low key day!  No amazing ideas to report here from todays lessons!  We finished our Predictable Chart, “A Pumpkin is…” :

We read a book out pumpkins and at the end of the book, it listed some of the other colors that pumpkins could be like….blue, purple, terra cotta, yellow, green, and reddish! Here is the book!

We also read our Pumpkin, Pumpkin Big Book again today.  We re-told the story by looking at the pictures and then we hunted for the word pumpkin.  We then highlighted the word pumpkin and counted how many times it was in the story–13!

We also finished up our apple weaving–we didn’t get to it last week!

Here are a couple of shots of the bulletin boards outside of my room.  Sometimes I go for cutesy, but right now I’m just focusing on content and the ideas we are working on.  They may seem sloppy to some, but I would rather have too much of their work up than not enough!  The Kinder. kids take so much pride in their work–why not show it to everyone!?
