We talked about how much we thought a pumpkin weighs . We weighed Mc Kayla and talked about if we thought the pumpkin weighed more or less than McKayla. McKayla weighed 45 pounds. When Mc Kayla held the pumpkin the scale said 54. We counted and figured out that the pumpkin weighed 9 pounds . PERFECT ! We are singing a song with the number 9 in it.
Some like it hot.
Some like it cold.
Some like it in the pot
Nine days old.
We looked inside the pumpkin to see if we thought a lady would actually fit inside and of course the kids said ” no.” Scarlett replied that a mouse could live in the pumpkin. Dillion said a snake could live in the pumpkin. That….. would be my last pumpkin.
We played a game called SPAT the MONSTER. Mrs. Bethany called out a letter and the children at the table would SPLAT the letter MONSTER with their hand.
Mrs. Bethany brought new orange playdoh she made at home to play with today. There is a pumpkin playdoh recipe on pinterest that I have been thinking of trying.
Mrs . Dallas was here again today to play She read a lot to the kids. I love listening to informal reading ( reading that is asked for by the children instead of planned ) . Rumor is Mrs . Dallas might start an family home daycare like ours that takes infants and toddlers. I think she would be great .
