Today as we continue our fall science unit we read the book Pumpkin Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington. Pumpkin Pumpkin is a book that follows a boy that found some pumpkin seeds that planted them and watched the pumpkin grow. Students learned different pumpkin science vocabulary and the life cycle of a pumpkin. Finally students retold the sequence of the story by putting in order the life of a pumpkin seed in a A-Z Teacher Stuff craft.
On Monday we started our unit on fall. During our calendar time we sang the song Four Seasons in a Year by Harry Kindergarten and came up with movements to go along with the song. Students had fun trying to guess which season Harry Kindergarten was describing.
We then created a read life venn diagram to compare and contrast summer and fall. Students did a cut and paste activity sorting pictures into seasons that they best fit in.
We read the story Clifford’s First Autumn by Norman Bridwell and made a list of fall activities that Clifford and Emily Elizabeth participated in. Then students made a text to self connection by writing about what activity from the story that they like to do.
Today we went through a Brain Pop Jr. lesson on fall and did a autumn leaves finger stamping art project. Students pressed their fingers into ink pads and made autumn leaf trees and picked which fall color they liked the best.
