Pumpkins Everywhere!

Yesterday Mme Natalie brought in two pumpkins for our class to explore - a large one, and a small one. The students learned the french words for big ("gros") and small ("petit").  Today, Ms Quinn brought in a third pumpkin to show the class. We decided that this pumpkin was medium sized because it was bigger than the small pumpkin, but smaller than the large one.

We started to investigate the pumpkins. We used magnifying glasses to examine the pumpkins up close, we drew pictures of the pumpkins and wrote about them, and we used cubes to help us measure how tall the pumpkins were. 

The students have lots of wonderings already about the pumpkins and what's inside. Stay tuned to see what we do next!

Also, thank you to all of the families who have sent in family pictures for our class display. We have created a family tree in our book nook for the students to enjoy. If you have not sent in a picture, but would like to, we will gladly add them to our tree as they come in!
