Pumpkins

We had a fun week this week...busy, but fun!  We had a great trip to the pumpkin patch!  Thanks to all my parents for your help!  We also learned all about pumpkins...the life cycle of a pumpkin, what they need to grow,  what are they good for, and much more.  We investigated our class pumpkin that we got at the pumpkin patch.  Most students "thought" it would sink, but we found out that pumpkins float whether they are big or small.  We started estimation this month, and we had some great estimations about how tall our pumpkin would be and the circumference of our pumpkin.  A few actually had perfect estimations.  





10 cubes tall
it floated


If you have never read Too Many Pumpkins, it's a must read.  So cute!  One of my favorites.  It's great to teach making predictions because most of the pages end with "until...".  We filled in our story map after reading the story.
