We had a wonderful October! This was a month full of fun, adventures, and learning!
We welcomed fall with lots of discussions about apples, scarecrows, owls, and pumpkins. We loved learning about apples and making apple prints. Looking for the hidden star inside was a real treat for us all.
Our class also loved learning about the lifecycle of the pumpkin plant. We learned that a pumpkin seed is planted in soil, and that we give the seed lots of sun, water and air. After some time, the seed sprouts. The sprout grows and grows and develops into a vine. Next, a yellow flower grows. A baby green pumpkin will grow behind the yellow flower. Finally, the green pumpkin will ripen and it will turn orange. Then, the cycle will start all over again, using the seeds inside the pumpkin.
We loved our trip to the pumpkin patch. The pumpkins were few and far between, but we got to enjoy a beautiful fall day. Too bad our trip had to be rescheduled because of the storm.
We also had a great time at the Fall Activity. Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered their time, and who sent in supplies to make our activity a success!
Pumpkin Palooza was a blast. It was fun seeing so many Room 3 friends at Pumpkin Palooza!
Our class had a great time carving a pumpkin. We were “Pumpkin Scientists” as we weighed and measured our pumpkin. We counted the lines on our pumpkin and measured the circumference of our pumpkin using links. We voted on how we should carve our pumpkin. Finally, we grouped the seeds into groups of 10 and counted them. Our pumpkin had 225 seeds!
We have loved our visits from Master Cho’s Tae Kwon Do. Master Cho has been teaching us about brain focus, eye focus, and body focus.
We learned about fire safety in October. We made these super cute firefighters to remind us about all of the ways to prevent fires and to stay safe in case of a fire.
We enjoyed a visit from Mrs. Williams and her therapy dog, Wrigley. She talked to us about how Wrigley helps people. We also got to see some of his tricks!
Thanks to Aneesh’s mom, Kenley’s mom, and Alex’s mom for being our Mystery Readers in October!
We have had a fun time sorting all kinds of things!
We can’t wait to see what fun November holds for us! Remember to keep checking our photo album because there are many more pictures from October, and we will be continually updating it throughout the year.
