P is for Pumpkin

Our letter in our Pre-K  class was doing letter P last week.  Appropriately, we decided to center our weeks plans around the book, "Pumpkin, Pumpkin," by  Jeanne Titherington.

Mrs. D is a great advocate of books with the children and the printed word.  On Monday, we read the book "Pumpkin, Pumpkin" to the children.  Then we created a class book based on the pumpkin book.

To make our class book we split the children into groups.  With each group we created a picture, then the children dictated words to me that I wrote on the page.  I titled my book "Pumpkins."  We are then going to let the children share the book with their families.  I think the books we are creating are so cute.

So that all the children would be doing something each day we also worked on a jack-o-lantern.  On Monday, we painted a piece of paper orange.  Then on Friday, I gave them a pumpkin pattern to trace.  After they traced the pattern, they cut it out.  Finally, I gave them a piece of black paper to cut out a face which they glued to their pumpkin.

On Wednesday, we made our porcupine for letter P.  The weeks are flying by.
