p is for pumpkins (year 3, week 10)

Pumpkin Week at Mommy School!

Gymnastics class!

Today we had a play date with some good friends and made pumpkin muffins.  We also made homemade, pumpkin spice play dough, which all the kids enjoyed.  It was a bit crazy with seven kids under eight, but still lots of fun.

Dragonfly did some math tonight.  She's doing addition to ten and learning her numbers to 30.  She counts everything!  At the beginning of the year, she didn't know how to write any of the numbers.  Now, she can write 0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, and 9.  We're still doing hand over hand for 3, 5, and 8.  She was very excited to learn that the bigger numbers are just made up of those ten digits.  She almost knows how to write every number possible!  She loves to spy numbers everywhere.

AWANA day!

We were planning on opening a pumpkin today to play in the guts.  Our pumpkin got bumped around too much over the last week and has rotted.  Another week where the planned activity didn't go as planned.

Instead, I set Dragonfly up with a glow writing tray,
                                                         which kept her happy for a long time.


I bought a pie pumpkin from the store, so we could try again with our exploration (although the rotting pumpkin became a discovery of its own).

We watched the Pumpkin Patch Parable on Youtube and then explored the inside of a pumpkin.  We roasted the seeds and talked about the pumpkin life cycle.  The kids loved munching the seeds!

Dragonfly did more math workbook.

We used candy pumpkins to work out addition problems.
