This week we are really getting things going with our pumpkin theme! Miss Erin had so many new things for us to explore when we came to school today. We found corn in our sensory table and used our fingers to push kernals off of the cob. We also discovered that our dramatic play area is turning into a pumpkin patch! Instead of our usual food and plates, we found pumpkins, gourds, and scarecrows! We also worked on decorating signs to put up for our pumpkin patch. By far, our favorite new thing was a Little People haunted house complete with trick-or-treaters!
On Thursday, we are going to take a walk to investigate a real pumpkin patch. One of the other teachers at school, Miss Stephanie, has a big pumpkin patch just a block from our school! We can't wait to see how pumpkins grow. Please be sure to send your child in good walking shoes on Thursday.
