Fall means PUMPKINS!

Recently we learned about PUMPKINS! Here we labeled: skin, stem, tendril, meat and seeds!

We used popsicle sticks, chenille stems, and links to measure ours. Then we drew them on our report.

Here is a playdoh pumpkin!

Our pumpkin foods we tasted were: seeds, bread, pie and cupcakes! Our class favorite? It was close...CUPCAKES!

We learned the life cycle of pumpkins: seed, vine, stem, flower, green, unripe pumpkin and ripe, orange pumpkin!

Pastor Snow told us how WE are like pumpkins. God chooses us, washes our sins away, (through Baptism)...

removes our sins (through Jesus' death on the cross) and saves us!

(Our pumpkin had 346 seeds!)

Because of Jesus' love for us, we ought to share that love with others!

Thank you, God, for creating PUMPKINS!

We LOVE Birds!

We learned about different kinds of birds. We made our favorite in a nest all it's own!

We labeled their: eyes, beak, wings, feet and tail. This is Clara's cardinal!

We used stencils to trace birds, then colored them like our favorites! Benjamin likes eagles!

It was a tricky center, but we used tongs to "eat" birdseed!

OUR birds with beaks!!!

We made owls with a feather AB pattern!

Cade is showing how he spread sun butter on a pinecone and added birdseed!

Lining up to take them outside!

We hung them on a tree for our feathered friends!

We also had fun sorting eggs and building nests at our sensory table!

Thank you, God, for creating BIRDS!

Apple FUN!

September was the month we learned about APPLES! We stamped our favorite color of apples, and cut and wove our own basket!!!

One of our Science experiments had us cut an apple in half, to see the APPLE STAR!

We labeled the parts of an apple...

sequenced them 1-30...

peeled them...

...this came from ONE apple! The birds LOVED our peelings!

We tasted our homemade applesauce, slices with caramel, pie and cider. Our class favorite? Apple slices with caramel! A CLOSE contest!

We even shaped apples and their parts our of playdough!

Check our our kindergarten APPLE tree!

We celebrated Johnny Appleseed's birthday and did fun activities ALL day!

Thank you, God, for creating and giving us APPLES!  YUM!!!!!
