Today was the first day of second grade for my kiddos. It was a great day getting organized, learning about each other, and setting the tone for the year. I am really excited about my students and the family we will be this year. My hope is that we settle in to a routine in the next few days, learn lots about each other, and love learning anywhere and everywhere. I am blessed once again this year and hope you all are having a blessed new school year too.
Fall is coming! I have been meaning to make a writing activity for the life cycle of a pumpkin and finally sat down last night and did! I can't wait for the leaves to start changing colors and falling. I love this time of year. Each year we read a story from Reading Street about pumpkins, and I thought this would be a great a writing activity to partner with it.
I usually always make pumpkin dip as a treat for my students when we are learning about pumpkins. One of my assistants a few years ago got me addicted to this I just love this treat with granny smith apples, vanilla wafers, or graham crackers.
Thaw cool whip. Mix pumpkin, dry vanilla pudding mix, and pumpkin pie spice. Fold in thawed cool whip and serve. Yummy!!!
