This week our class learned all about pumpkins. We discussed the parts of a pumpkin, how they grow, and the different types of pumpkins. The students measured their height in pumpkins and made tear art pumpkins. The favorite activity with the pumpkins was the Pumpkin Carving. The class voted on the faces for the pumpkins and then the helped to clean out the pumpkins. They all really had a lot of fun with every part of the the whole process. Please remember that we are collecting donations for our Toy Basket, any and all donations will be greatly appreciated.

This has been a very busy week for our class. We had a wonderful time on our field trip to the Hinesville Fire Station. The students loved seeing all the trucks, equipment, and where the fire fighters eat and rest. Also the students were able to climb through the fire truck and watch the fire fighters race to get dressed for a call. We were visited by Officer F. Gallob of the Hinesville Police Department. He shared with us all the duties of his job and why he is important to our community. Thank you to all the parents who were able to join us on the field trip and for those who missed it below there are a few pictures.
