To celebrate wrapping up our first reading unit of the year and the upcoming holiday, we are going to make Book Character Pumpkins to put on display for our Halloween celebration on the 28th!
At home, please help your child decide on which book character they would like to create using their pumpkin. Then, make a plan on the pumpkin plan sheet and send the plan sheet back to school along with one small pumpkin for your child to decorate. We have lots of paint and paper at school, but your child is also welcome to bring in any other accessories they would like to add! We will create our pumpkins on Thursday, October 27th so they are ready to go on the 28th!
Please have your pumpkin plan sheets along with your pumpkins back to class by Wednesday, October 26th. If you are unable to get a pumpkin by this time, please let me know and I will be sure to bring extras!
All family members are invited to join us for a Halloween Celebration on Friday, October 28th at 1:00 pm. We will have our character pumpkins on display, we will have a few Halloween Treats, and we will play some Halloween games!
Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
