Books This Week:

Concept Questions For This Week:
-What is a family?
-Who are the people in your family?
-Begin discussion of family tree project

Small Groups This Week:
1. Pumpkin sorting- We will put real pumpkins in size order, then cut and glue a set of pumpkins to put them in order from smallest to biggest and/or biggest to smallest
2.Measuring and scooping a pumpkin- We will estimate the height and circumference of a pumpkin using non-standard units of measure(using cubes to measure how tall and string to measure length around the pumpkin). Then we will scoop the seeds out of the pumpkin. We will use our senses to discuss the inside of each of our pumpkins.
3. Pumpkin and Vine Math Books- First we will draw vines on each page of our books. Then we will use 1:1 correspondence to place the correct number of pumpkins(our thumbprints) on each page. We will focus on numbers 6-10.
