Activities for Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010

We had another very windy day, but some classes went outside and some stayed inside to play.

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "Clifford's 1st Halloween" by Norman Bridwell

Our question was "D you have a pet?"

We made pumpkin prints using a real pumpkin and orange glitter paint.

We had black cats and bats at the easel for making prints.

We played pass the pumpkin- the children passed the pumpkin around the circle and stopped when the music stopped. We also sang On Halloween, On Halloween and 3 little pumpkins on a hill

We turned our snack into pumpkin bagels and ate them....yummy

Maple Room:

We read Froggy's Halloween by Jonathan London

We used leaf shape cookie cutters to make prints with paint and glitter.

We had pumpkin shapes at the easel with orange paint and glue. We added some construction paper face pieces to add to the pumpkins.

We sang the October song, down around the corner at the pumpkin patch, pass the pumpkin and the Month's song.

We did a classroom experiment with a large pumpkin. Will a pumpkin sink or float? We made guesses at what we thought it would do and then we put the pumpkin in a large tub of water to see what would happen. We also put many other things in the water too, to see if they would sink or float. Some were smaller than a pumpkin, some were heavy and some were light weight.

We then carved a face in our pumpkin. The children voted on the features of the face.

Oak Room;We read "The little old lady who was not afraid of anything." By Linda Williams

We did pumpkin prints at the easel and we worked in our journals at the table- letter G words.

We had a graphing activity out today and number pegs. the children did a lot of building with blocks.

We did some spider rhymes and pumpkin rhymes.

we asked the children if they had a letter G' in their name.
