Room 107 had a BLAST today during our Pumpkin Passport Party!
This afternoon the students enjoyed working through many pumpkin themed centers during our Pumpkin Passport Party. Your child brought home their passport, which listed all the Pumpkin “places” your child visited in class. The learning goals for each center are listed below. Thank you SO MUCH to our in-class and at-home volunteers who helped to make this passport party a success!
Pumpkin Weaving: While weaving strips of paper, students needed to use fine motor planning.
Pumpkin Patch: At this center, students identified and sequenced the life cycle of a pumpkin.
Pumpkin Prints: Students used their artistic talents and painted a pumpkin patch using real life pumpkins, orange and white paint on a black background.
Pumpkin Musical Chairs: A twist on the classic game of musical chairs. We got to move and work on initial letter sounds. Each chair had a lower case letter that students had to match with a real object.
Pumpkin Playdough: While poking, rolling, and squishing play dough, students develop the small muscles in their fingers and hands. They also gain strength and improve dexterity in their hands and fingers, critical areas of development for writing and drawing!
Pumpkin Decorating: Students got to exercise their creative muscles while decorating a foam pumpkin with googly eyes and sequins.
The most important thing was...we had fun!
