This October the students in Mrs. Reed's PreK classroom got the opportunity to visit a local pumpkin patch. This gave the students first hand knowledge of where and how pumpkins are grown. They explored the pumpkin patch noticing the vines, the insects, and the variety of shapes and sizes of pumpkins. They even got to pick their very own pumpkin for home! The only rule was they had to be able to carry it back to the bus. Some students started with large pumpkins and traded for smaller pumpkins. When back in the classroom the students had the chance to use all of their senses to explore what was inside the pumpkin and even painted a pumpkin for our classroom.
