What happened in October?
Halloween is quickly approaching
Fire Truck Visit
Did you know not all fire trucks are red? The one we saw was green and white. The fire company can pick the colors for their truck!
We completed the day by completing a firetruck directed drawing! I love how they all turn out different, yet still look similar! We will do many different directed drawings throughout the year.
I think the button will sink.
I think the button will float.
I think the button will slide off the sand.
I think the water will move the button.
The sand fell.
It was like quick sand.
It sunk and kind of moved.
Where is the Pumpkin?
Everyone decided where they wanted their pumpkin to be in relation to the scarecrow. We will make it into a book that will stay in the class library. Everyone also got a copy of their own to bring home. Check out the video below to see each child reading their page.

Star of the Week
My mom came in for a surprise visit one morning and read the class "Little Boo".
Connor's grandmom visited and read "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything". Since it was so close to Halloween, she brought us a Rice Krispy treat and Halloween pencil & eraser.
