Peek at Week: Pumpkins Take Two

I write this post with a heavy heart today. I have been struggling all weekend to find the right words to say but there is none. Yesterday, my school family suffered a great lost. Our amazing secretary, Brenda, passed away unexpectedly. It still does not feel real. She was the glue that kept our school together. She was the heart and soul of Jackson. I cannot imagine one day in the school without her. Going to school tomorrow will be very hard on our entire school family. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers along with her amazing family. Brenda, you are forever loved and will truly be missed.


Yesterday was Halloween and here is a quick picture of the fun we had! Haylee was Harley Quinn and her friend was Joker :) Aren't they adorable!!! And of course his little brother is the cutest Olaf ever!

Last week we started our Pumpkin unit. Daily 5 and Math Centers were all about Pumpkins this week! They loved every second of it!

We also had fun with the Bag of Bones Cheetos! We graphed our snack then used it to create a skeleton. Then we ate some of course! This amazing Freebie is from Mary at Sharing Kindergarten. Check out the freebie here.



We also started our new Pumpkin Flippy Flaps this week and will continue them next week. My amazing friend that homeschools her son is using them to and sent me these pictures of our Flippy Flaps in action!
