Happy Halloween!

Since Halloween was on a Monday this year, we were able to have lots of celebrating at school! I have been tell the kids that we were going to be able to investigate our pumpkin and this week we did! We did an experiment to see if we thought our pumpkin would sink or float. We had 9 people think it would float and 9 people who thought it would sink! We were split! We found out that our pumpkin........FLOATS! We talked about why it floats even though it is heavy. We also were able to carve our pumpkin into a Jack-o-Lantern! We voted on our face and mushed our hands in pumpkin guts! YUCK! We lit our Jack-o-Lantern while we had a special Halloween snack. Thanks to all the moms who were able to help. We were even able to trick-or-treat at BSLK! We had a blast making spooky noises in the dark hallways and visiting our lunch room, office, library, and specials teachers and staff. Whew! The kids and I were tired,
but ready to trick-or-treat again that night.
 Making our predictions  if our pumpkin would sink or float.

 Will it sink or float?????

 Some very scary vampires! Thank you Jaxon!

Some kindergarten witches!

We are finally winding down from our candy filled Monday. We are moving right along to studying about Indians, Pilgrims, and Thanksgiving. We will have some very busy weeks ahead of us so parents, please check our folders daily and read our newsletter. I'm so thankful to have all your little sweeties this year.

Have a great weekend and I must say, ROLL TIDE!!

  2. Wow, it looks like you had a lot of fun on Halloween! Our school hosts a Halloween Howl for all the primary classes. We all take part in some fun halloween relays in the gym, then there is a costume parade and dance, followed by some halloween snacks in our classrooms.
    We live in Canada, so we celebrated Thanksgiving earlier in October.
