Last week, we were able to test our hypothesis that we made with our senses about popcorn. We discussed what an observation and a hypothesis was, and then we were able to observe what actually happens when popcorn is made! The kids loved it and had a lot of fun!
We will be carving pumpkins in our classroom on October 28th for Spooktacular at the Dickerson Park Zoo. I am needing parents to help carve pumpkins in our classroom. You would be working with a small group (4 kids) on carving one pumpkin. If this is something you would be interested in, please click the link to sign up on VolunteerSpot below.

The Book-It program also starts in October, and when you and your child reads at least 10 books in a month, return the reading log and your child will get a coupon to receive a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! Also, when your child reads 100 books in our class, I will order pizza for them and we will get to celebrate their accomplishment! If you have any questions, please let me know.
