We are so excited to have our very own class pumpkin! Last week, we explored and experimented with our pumpkin. We counted how many lines it had (39) and felt the pumpkin and it's stem! Then, we carved our pumpkin open. The preschoolers were able to see what the inside of a pumpkin looks like, and then they were also given the opportunity to touch the insides of a pumpkin! It was so much fun. Our pumpkin is now in our science center for the preschoolers to continue to explore and observe.
We have read many poems and books about how the leaves fall during Fall, and today, we decided to go on a leaf hunt around the neighborhood! Each preschooler collected their own bag of leaves. Throughout the week, we will sort our leaves by color, study/explore them in our science center, and even do some crayon leaf rubbings! We had a blast.
Since we have been focusing on our current season, Fall, we decided to make a class Fall mural! We talked about the different colors we see outside during Fall, which were red, orange, yellow, and brown. We then painted a giant class mural using those colors! The preschoolers were encouraged to paint whatever/however they wanted. They were given paint brushes to use, and they were also encouraged to use their hands! It turned out awesome. The students did a great job working together to create this amazing piece of art. It is hanging in the hallway outside of our room, come check it out!
