"P" is for Pumpkin

We had SO much fun exploring and investigating... P U M P K I N S! For our literacy centers we listened to "Scaredy-Cat Splat!" by Rob Scotton at the listening station, we colored and read our "Pumpkin Happy" book, we wrote our pumpkin poem in our poetry journals, and we made the most adorable "My Pumpkin" hanging paper pumpkins! FUN!

Next, we got down & dirty... and totally slimy in science!! We had such a blast exploring and investigating the ooey-gooey inside pulpy guts of a pumpkin. I absolutely la-la-loved listening to my little kindergartners screaming "EEWWW!" and "That is so slimy!"... and not to mention all the laugh, laugh, laughing out loud!! It is quite possible that I had more fun then the students did!!

Finally, we finished up our unit on pumpkins with our "How To" writing in Writer's Workshop. The students wrote, "How to Grow a Pumpkin" and "How to Carve a Pumpkin" with this *freebie* I put on TpT... a 'How To' Writing Worksheet.
