It's Pumpkin Time!

We came back from the farm with two large pumpkins for our classrooms.  They were such beautiful pumpkins, yet it was now time to turn them into jack-o-lanterns.

The children each took a turn hollowing out the pumpkins.
Inside the pumpkins we found seeds and pulp.

The children decided how they wanted the jack-o-lanterns to look.  Madame D. did the carving.

Voila!  A jack-o-lantern!

During the month of October, the children learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin both in our classrooms and at the farm. After the pumpkin carving experience, they were pumpkin experts.  Each child made a book to share their pumpkin knowledge with their families. 

Rilee knows pumpkins, outside....

and in!

We had a great time turning our pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns!
