This week we focused on Pumpkins

Last week focus ran into this week; we continued some of our activities and extend others!

  • We Kept the teeing off pumpkin and added rubber bands to transform it into a pumpkin geoboard
  • As a class we did yarn painting of pumpkins
  • We also used our colored pumpkin seeds for tree art as well as seed transfers. Seed transfer is a math game that also encourages the use of fine motor skills. There are 2 bowls, a dice, pumpkin seeds and tweezers. They roll the dice and then use the tweezers to move pumpkin seeds from one bowl to another.
  • We practiced tracing (lines) pumpkin vines and used lacing cards.
  • As a class we visited the pumpkin Rotten Jack which we are monitoring as a science project. We are observing the rotting process.
  • We went on a nature walk and used our senses to make observations and explore our environment
