Last Friday we had pumpkin day! We took out all of the pumpkin seeds from our class pumpkin. There were 230 seeds in all. We made pumpkin pie in a bag. It was fantastic! The whole class made 3D pumpkins. We also wrote describing words about our pumpkins from Goebberts. Then we wrote a paragraph about our pumpkins!

We have mealworms in our classroom. When they came they were mealworms larva. They live in wheat germ in a vial. Mealworms eat small pieces of sweet potatoes. After they are larvae they turn in to a pupa. Then they turn into a Darkling beetle. Mealworm larvae have six legs ,two eyes and two antennas. We use our magnifying glasses to see them closer. We have a scientist book where we write observations and draw pictures.

We went to the Goebbert’s Pumpkin Farm last Thursday! Our class got to pick out pumpkins. We put them in a bag and we also got some gourds. The hayride was fun for the whole class! We saw sheep, lambs, pigs, chickens, rabbits, goats, peacocks, llamas, bees and ducks. We also played in their two mazes. At Goebbert’s there is a pumpkin eating dinosaur that loves to eat pumpkins. The dinosaur also blew smoke at us too! We had SO much fun at Goebbert’s today.

On October 14th our class went outside to a trailer. We wached a video about EDITH, which stands for exit drill in the home. Then we went to another room. A firefighter talked to us. He told us how to get out of the house if there is a fire. We got to praitce getting out by pretending we were sleeping, a pretend fire alarm, and getting out of the window.
At the assembly on October 10th we saw a lot of veterans. Then Mr. Woods, a veteran came in our class room. Mr. Woods was in the army and he was in the tank. He told us that in the Mess Hall you could not talk and if you talked everybody would have to stand up and eat. Also when the general came in your room he would bounce a quarter on top of your bed if the quarter did not come back he would mess up your bed.
