Pumpkin Jack October 12, 2018

Pumpkin Happenings

Young pumpkin enthusiasts are deep into our study of pumpkins. Kindergarteners learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin during Science this week, through read-alouds and class discussions. We read Pumpkin Circle: The Story of a Garden, Pumpkin, Pumpkin, and Pumpkin Jack. Our young scientists learned about the life cycle and parts of a pumpkin. They now know that the beautiful yellow flowers that grow from a pumpkin vine are the promise for a future pumpkin. Scientists also observed our “Pumpkin Jack” and recorded daily observations of the changes occurring. So far they have noticed that it is getting “fuzzy” or “furry” and there is a lot of pumpkin juice at the bottom of the container. Stay tuned as we continue to learn more about the decomposing process through our pumpkin unit!

Storytellers

This week, Kindergarten storytellers worked with their “Peanut Butter and Jelly Partners” to retell story books! Your reader retold stories by looking at the previous page, saying the words first, next and last, and by using dialogue that the characters use. Kindergarteners can’t wait to continue learning how to make facial expressions and voices like the characters so they can act out the popular story, “Three Billy Goats Gruff.”

Math

This week in math Kindergarten mathematicians have been working on numbers 6 through 10. We have mastered the ability to sort by count using numbers 6 through 10. Your Kindergartener has the ability to write out these numbers and count them using objects.
