It’s Pumpkin Time

This week we learned about the lifecycle of a pumpkin.  We watched a movie called Pumpkin Circle and read this big book about how to grow a pumpkin.DSCN2649

Then we made a book of our own by sequencing the pictures and sentences.

We also read Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White and did an activity about the main character. DSCN2648

Most of our centers this week work pumpkin themed. 

We put words in ABC Order and drew a picture to go with each word.DSCN2619

We created colorful patterns {AB. ABC. AAB. ABB} with pumpkins.DSCN2634DSCN2629

We sorted pumpkins by color and graphed them.  Then we solved addition math problems by adding two colors of pumpkins together to see how many we had in all.DSCN2636

We also used a deck of pumpkin shaped playing cards to make and solve addition math problems and listened to The Runaway Pumpkin at the listening center and did a rhyming word activity.

To review our short vowel sounds we sorted short vowel pictures and matched them with the correct vowel sound.  We also played several of our short vowel review word games.

{Sorry no pictures of these last few centers . . . the disk inside my digital camera ran out of memory.}
