Mrs. McIvor does so much to enhance the children's learning. This is a video of the "Billy Billy," which incorporates singing, dancing, and following directions with a partner!
We decorated paper pumpkins and turned them into jack-o-lanterns by gluing eyes, a nose, and mouth using a variety of shapes to represent each. Some of the children added ears, eyebrows, or legs.
Carving our class pumpkin was lots of fun! The children chose the shapes for the eyes, nose and mouth. Mrs. Samuel carved the pumpkin. Then we scooped out the pulp and the seeds. We heard words as "gooey, slimy, wet, and squishy" as they reached their hands into the jack-o-lantern.
At circle on Wednesday, we did our first morning greeting. The children were given a shape. A child with the matching shape stepped into the middle of the rug to greet the first child by saying "hello" and giving a hug! This reinforces good manners, looking into the eyes of a friend as you speak, and sharing love!
We created Halloween necklaces by stringing beads and adding a felt pumpkin.
On Thursday, Mrs. Smay read Anancy and the Haunted House by Richardo
This is a delightful story about teamwork and the importance of us all, no matter how big or how small we are.
Some of the other books that we read this week are:
Happy Halloween Biscuit by Alyssa Capucilli
A B C's of Halloween by Patricia Eubank
Corduroy's Halloween by Don Freeman
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
Things With Wings by Carson Creigh

We took time before the Halloween Parade on Friday to pose for pictures!
We watched the parade of lower division students before we joined them.
