Pumpkins Everywhere in Kindergarten!

It’s October! In kindergarten we are diving into all things Fall. This week in Mrs. Nelson’s class we are focusing on pumpkins. Some of our favorite pumpkin books so far are Pumpkin, Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington, From Seed to Pumpkin by Wendy Pfeffer, and It’s Pumpkin Time by Zoe Hall.

It’s Pumpkin Time begins with two children preparing for one of their favorite holidays. Of course, they have to plant pumpkin seeds to get ready for Halloween!  As the story, unfolds we learn all about the life cycle of a pumpkin… 

As a class we explored some cool videos of a pumpkins life cycle and created a flow chart together. Each student then demonstrated their knowledge by creating their own pumpkin sequencing activity.

We even planted our own pumpkin seeds a couple of weeks ago when we were studying plants. We were able to watch them sprout and begin to grow bigger by the day! The plant was getting too big to keep in the small pot in our classroom, so it was transported to, our wonderful aid, Mrs. Pietras’s garden. She is taking pictures of it for us and we are hoping to see a pumpkin flower soon.

Up next this week, pumpkin anatomy! We will be exploring the insides of a real pumpkin and learning all of its specific parts and their functions.
