We began the week by getting excited for our field trip. We read all about les citrouilles, and learned our size words: petit, moyen, and grand. We also had a police officer come to talk to us about road safety and safety on Halloween night.
Tuesday, we were excited to ride on our very first school bus. At the pumpkin patch, we rode on a hay wagon, chose our pumpkins (petite ou moyen), rolled around in hay, sang and danced. When we got back to school, we measured our pumpkins with cubes, and compared their sizes and colours. I hope you had a chance to carve or decorate them at home.
Students rotated through 5 centers: Pin the Wart on The Witch; Mummy Wrap, where students wrapped each other with toilet paper to resemble mummies (at one point they even wrapped up the volunteer Maman!); Bricolage; a listening center with French Halloween music; and a craft centre where we made Jack O Lanterns.
We also had healthy Halloween treats, like Frankenstein rice krispies, BOOnanas, and home-made fruit leathers shaped like bats.
We reviewed our Halloween vocabulary with Halloween themed Bingo and we sang the new songs we learned for Halloween. Check them out under the 'les chansons' tab.
I hope you had a safe and happy Halloween!
