Pumpkin, Pumpkin, What's Inside the Pumpkin? A Happy Little Science Experiment

Today was a great day to do science experiments with a fall pumpkin!  We weighed and measured our pumpkin.  We also measured the circumference of our pumpkin with a cool piece of yarn!  I offered a differentiated response sheet for my two groups so that I could meet the needs of one group and challenge the other group.

 When I pulled the goop and seeds out of the pumpkin, my kiddies were making faces and saying, "Ewwwww!!"  When I sent the top around for the kiddies to examine, they were laughing and saying, "Wow!  It smells good!  It's such a pretty color! It's slimy on my fingers!"

They really had a lot of fun and a ton of learning going on this morning in Room A-1!  Tomorrow, we'll plant the seeds so that we can grow another pumpkin plant!  We'll also work to discover if a different pumpkin will sink or float!

Thanks, stay in touch and have a great Thursday!

Say A Little Prayer For The Copier!

Hey all!
Sorry I've been out of touch for a little while!  I was a little overloaded with school and planning my youngest daughter's wedding!  It was a beautiful event and my part is finished so I'm trying to get back to normal  ---- whatever that means!! LOL!!

One of my friends at school snapped this funny picture of me in the copy room at school recently!  I have an interest (actually a small obsession really!)  in fixing the copy machine when it goes down because I think I can do it.   Most of the time I can fix the paper jams, most of the time I can figure out the problems, and once in a while I get lucky and I can make it work with a little prayer and some divine intervention!

There's always something fun going on in Kindergarten!  This day was no exception!

Hope your day is just as much fun and all your copier problems can be easily fixed!
