More Halloween fun

Carving our jack-o-lantern

Baking pumpkin bread


We made Spooky spiders for Halloween decorations. We painted brown lunch bags, and then we stuffed them with newspaper, How many legs does a spider have? Non-fiction books tell us facts. We looked in a book about spiders to find out the answer to our question. We counted out 8 sticks to make the legs of our spiders.

Birthday Birds!

We made a beautiful birthday wall.

We talked about bird body parts. Birds have wings for flying, eyes for seeing, feet for walking and holding on to things and beaks for eating.

The VPK students did some "matching" work along with learning how to write the letter B.

Bread baking at Imagine

We made the best, most delicious bread. The children watched what happens when warm water, sugar and yeast are mixed together. We added the yeasty mixture to flour, oil and salt. The children kneaded the dough, and then we baked it.
There is nothing quite like warm bread you baked yourself. We hope to repeat this activity as often as possible.
