Pumpkins, Monsters, and Celebration!

What a great first week back!  Forgive me for one long blog post, I promise I will "get it together" for more frequent postings! :)

This week we did a few pumpkin experiments that the kids had not yet finished and we carved our pumpkin!
Thanks for the great pumpkin Mrs. Roberts!

Finally on Friday we had our Fall Celebration.  This is a time when the whole school gets together in the Tiger's Den to sing songs and share about what each pod is learning about!

Here is a short video of a song...

Be sure to check out the side bar of the blog (to the left) for a class picture!  We have one friend who is missing and as soon as he is here, we will update it! :)
Have a GREAT Monday! :)

Our first activity!

On Thursday I was able to go to school to meet my sweet babies!  I pulled each table out in the pod to share their journals with me and then to do a special activity!  We made "Magic Playdough!"  The kids were so excited to see their white playdough turn into a COLOR!  Here are a few pictures (I was so excited and answering questions that I missed a group or two)--don't worry I will make up for it next week with MANY more pictures and activities to come! :)






Happy Tuesday!
Love,
