August and September went by so quickly!!! It is hard to believe that October is
During the month of October we will read the big books -- Pumpkin, Pumpkin;
Growing Pumpkins; One Stormy Night; In a Dark, Dark Wood; and Monster's Party.
We will learn about the life cycle of the pumpkin and investigate the inside of
a pumpkin. We estimated how many seeds would be in our pumpkin, recorded those
guesses and then each child got a few of the seeds to count. Our pumpkin had 598
seeds!!! We also predicted whether a pumpkin would sink or float. Most students
guessed that it would float and they were right! Then we tested other objects in
the room to see if they would sink or float. This would be a great experiment to
do at home together.
We have a new set of sight words for the 2nd nine weeks. This list was sent home
in your child's folder.
Be sure to check your child's folder each week for homework, notes from school
and other important information.
