I was able to take my turn this week in teaching our preschool group. I was lucky, though, and only had to teach one day and the other day we went to a Christmas Tree farm for Pumpkin fun!
I loved getting to teach about pumpkins since Fall, pumpkins, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are what make up my favorite time of year! The children were silly, but I think they learned a little about pumpkins. I cut a pumpkin open for them and they all looked at it and put their hands on their noses and said, "ewe that's stinky!" Some were brave enough to put their hands in. My favorite part was piling a corner with blankets and making a cozy corner for reading books. The children actually sat and listened and wanted me to keep reading! They were all so cute snuggled in the blankets and listening to the pumpkin stories. Then they made their own little paper plate pumpkins. In spite of being tired, things went very well.
The pumpkin patch was fun too. The hostess read the children a couple of pumpkin books, then we all climbed up on a wagon for a tractor hayride. Our group was so large we used three trailers. Then we ate lunch and went through a corn maze. I think the children were all worn out by the end, when we decorated the pumpkins and then went home. I loved that they have animals for the children to see as well. I wish that Clark could have come with us, that would have made the fun complete! Enjoy the pictures of the week.
