Pumpkin Family Project

The students are bringing home their mini pumpkin and note today for the pumpkin project.  It will explain the project and ideas of book characters.  Please be creative and have the students choose a book character to create out of the pumpkin.  I would love for them to explain what the character trait is for their pumpkin creation and why they chose that character.  I am sure you will have fun with this project!

Olivia learned…

I learned not to be mean to others. We read Have You Filled a Bucket Today for Kids. I want to be a bucket filler and dipper. I can do this by being nice and not being rude.

This was a great book to read and talk about filling each other up with nice things and keeping mean things to ourselves.
