“Pumpkin Patch”

Each year Reese’s school sets up a “Pumpkin Patch” the week of Halloween.  They set up a bunch of pumpkins and then the kids go to the “Pumpkin Patch” to pick out their own special pumpkin (this year it was inside since the weather has been yucky this week).

Since they don’t wear their costumes to school, they were allowed to dress up like farmers because they talked about pumpkin farmers this week.  Reese’s teacher invited all of the parents to come and visit today.  I was really torn about going or not.  It was right during Sam’s nap time and I didn’t want him to be a distraction.  I decided to go and I am so glad that I did!  When I walked in Reese was so excited to see me and Sam.

They picked out their pumpkins, took some pictures, and then went back to their classroom for some special treats.  I love watching them say/sing their prayers before they eat their snack.  It is so sweet!

After snack time it was craft time.  They made a little farmer by gluing a shirt, overalls, and shoes on a cut out person.

Once all the farmers were completed they played for a while.  Then it was show-n-tell time.  The class is split up in to three groups: red, green, and blue.

Reese is in the blue group and they do show-n-tell on Thursdays.  For show-n-tell they can bring something that goes along with what they are learning each week.  This week they have been doing a review of everything they have learned (letters [M, N, T, D, F, H, A], numbers [0, 1, 2], colors [blue and orange]) so they were allowed to bring pretty much anything.  Reese chose to bring a dress-up necklace for the letter N.

She was so excited to get to do show-n-tell while I was there!  When we left school I asked her what her favorite thing was that she did today and she said, “Show-n-tell with Mommy there.”

Friends from the 2 year old class and now the 3 year old class.

And this little guy did very well!!  He wanted to be part of the class and definitely made sure everybody knew he was there.

I love visiting Reese’s class and getting to see a glimpse of what she is doing each day!
