Sixteen Runaway Pumpkins

We’ve taken advantage of the beautiful weather and taken walks. We walk with partners, stay in line and talk about the trees, flowers, birds, squirrels and flowers! We count the cars, trucks and buses that drive by and have fun naming the colors we see!

We’ll review letters A, B and C and numbers 1-12.
Over the next 2-3 weeks we’ll be learning about the five senses. This week we’ll use touching to identify different textures and surfaces (cotton, stone, sandpaper, tree bark, pumpkins and gourds).

We’ll play What’s missing?? using colorful pumpkins and ghourds of different shapes and sizes!

Look for our thumbprint pumpkin vines ( math ).
We’ll use sequencing cards ( 4 ) to order and tell a short story. This activity we’ll repeat and review ( with more challenge ) through the year.

We’ll read Sixteen Runaway Pumpkins ( Dianne Ochiltree ), Pumpkin Pumpkin ( Jeanne Titherington ) and From Seed to Pumpkin ( Wendy Pferrer ).
Look for our pumpkin booklets!
