We have been having so much fun learning all about pumpkins in Pre-Kindergarten! Last week we took at special field trip to Smith Rock Ranch to learn how pumpkins grow. Once we brought our pumpkins back to school, we conducted some pumpkin investigations which included measuring and weighing, exploring if they sink or float, and getting a little messy by carving our classroom pumpkin and counting out the seeds! We added many great observations to our science notebooks. We culminated our learning with roasting our seeds from our class pumpkin and eating them for snack! So yummy!

The leaves are falling and in art class, PK is learning all about the elements of art through creating a variety of fall-themed art pieces. In learning about color, your budding artist was introduced to Henri Matisse and created Apples on a Yellow Plate. To learn about line, they created bird line drawings. Wait until you see how adorable they are! To learn about texture, they created painted paper and collaged a colorful fall tree. Using shapes, we read the story of Pezzetino by Leo Lionni, and they created their own creatures and thought about how we are all unique and made up of many pieces that create the whole of who we are. There is no end to fun as we learn how to use paints, texture tools, pastels and sharpies, among other things, explore art mediums and creating something new each day.
