During small group time on Thursday, we explored pumpkins! We used our five senses to describe the appearance, texture (inside and out), smell, taste (seeds), and we counted the number of ribs! After cleaning out the pulp, we counted the number of seeds. We washed them, and put salt on them. Mrs. Dughlas, the cafeteria manager, roasted them in the oven for us. We then enjoyed the pumpkins seeds for snack time, and had leftovers to take home!
We went on a Book Hunt! Every other Monday, we go upstairs to the Media Center (library) to check out books. We went upstairs to the William Ford Library. Mrs. Makled, the media secretary, greeted and introduced the students to the media center/library. Mrs. Abdallah and I showed the children how to check out books in the library. We also practiced how to safely walk up and down the stairs. The students are keeping the books in their reading bags to read during Daily 5 time.
