A Peek at our Week of Pumpkins!!

Hey guys and dolls, 
how’s it going?
Last week was pumpkin week in our neck of the woods,
and I think it’s been my student’s favorite unit so far!!
So, we FINALLY read this book, and did the sequencing activity provided by
my friend Vickie ( I know what you ‘re thinking, I should have done this a few weeks ago, lol!).

So, here is what they have been waiting on all week!!
They didn’t care about discussing pumpkins, labeling pumpkins,
or anything else like that!!
They kind of liked the pumpkin observation,
but they absolutely LOVED the pumpkin investigation!!
I got the pumpkin observation sheet from this website,
they have some pretty awesome freebies!!

They loved being able to thump the pumpkin to see if it made a sound!!
Now, on to the fun part!!
Do you see how they are focusing?!?!?
They were serious!!
We used a lot of activities from Deanna Jump’s awesome unit!!
It had a great non-fiction reader, and awesome, awesome pumpkin pictures!!
Instead of yakking on, I’ll let the pictures do the talking!!!
