Family Project: Minions

Spookley and the 5 Little Pumpkins

Race for Education

Silly Sally

Great job everyone!

To celebrate the season students read Spookley the Square Pumpkin. We talked about how it is ok to be different than everyone else, and that everyone is special in there own way.

We also talked about facial expressions and then made our own square pumpkins with different expressions.

The students  also listened to the “5 Little Pumpkins” to get in to the spirit of the season. We reviewed characters and  facial expressions and how punctuation marks also show expression. They were able to choose whatever expressions they wanted for their pumpkins.

The Kindergartener’s participated in their first ever Race for Education. Big thanks to the PTA for the water and snacks. Everyone did a great job bringing back in their labels!

Fun was had by all. Check out the video below...

Pumpkin Diagram

Students talked about diagrams and how they are like picture maps. After reading about pumpkins they diagrammed the basic parts of a pumpkin by using real pumpkin parts! They also used beginning and final sounds to find the labels for the pumpkin parts.

Pete’s A Pizza

Students enjoyed the story Pete’s A Pizza by William Steig. They then made journal entry and an illustration to go along with it.

If they are ever bored or it is a rainy/snowy day this book makes for a great time if you act it out with them.

Remember to have your child read through their journal when it comes home and then send it back. Soon students will be adding their own words, and making more details to their illustrations.



Gianna and Anna having some messy fun! fun!

Big thanks to the PTA and the Homeroom Parents for putting on a great party!
