This last week we started learning about seasons and how our community and family adapt to the seasons. We started out by making a Venn Diagram showing things that are different and the same between fall and summer. Then students sorted pictures into the correct season.

For writing students wrote about the season that they liked the best and worked on adding details to their pictures as well as writing word wall words correctly.

In science we learned about living things like plants grow and change. We read the story Pumpkin, Pumpkin and created an anchor chart that illustrated the life cycle of a pumpkin. Then cut and glued the correct order of how a pumpkin grows in an art project.


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.
