It was a very exciting day in our classroom today as we carved our pumpkin! The girls were so excited in anticipation of this event! We discussed the color, texture and feel of the pumpkin; the students were then asked what they thought was inside the pumpkin. Their answers were so funny! These included ‘candy’ and ‘mommies’!! As I cut the top of the pumpkin off and listed it up; all the girls squealed and giggled! Their eyes lit up; they were amazed with the contents. We then attempted to scoop out the seeds; some students were brave enough to touch the seeds , some were not ! They all loved this activity ; they even sat and talked to our pumpkin at lunchtime!
