Pumpkin Fun in the Classroom

This month we have been talking about fall and the things that come with fall. One of those things is pumpkins. You can do so much with pumpkins including counting, learning letters, learning smells and the way the guts feel inside the pumpkin. I feel children learn best when hands on and that’s just what we did with pumpkins. We used the ipad for a learning tool to learn about pumpkins and the thing we could do with them.
The children loved to dress up the pumpkins.

 Mrs. Kelly is showing the children a story about pumpkins while the children are playing with playdoh.
