Weekly Recap

I can’t believe this week was the last week of October! This school year is going by very fast. To begin our week we had Mr. Paul, “The Critter Guy” visit our classrooms with a lot of fun animals for the students to learn about and interact with. He brought “Woody” the tree frog, “Art” the gecko, “Mr. and Mrs. Dove” the male and female doves, “Puff” the bearded dragon, “Cotton” the chinchilla, and “Pretzel” the corn snake. All of our pictures from the fun day are in the google photo album that is linked on the blog and was sent through Remind.

This week we also continued our celebration of Fall by exploring and learning about pumpkins! Each child was able to clean, explore, and then paint their very own pumpkin. On Wednesday they predicted how many pumpkin seeds would be in our large classroom pumpkin and on Thursday we opened up the pumpkin and the students helped scoop out the seeds and count them. Our pumpkin had 204 seeds and Younis was the closest with a prediction of 200 seeds! You can see pictures of all these in the photo album as well. Have a great weekend and remember to look at the November Calendar as there are days off and a 1/2 day as well.
