Pumpkin Patch Field Trip and HALLOWEEN!

So we didn't get to go on our Pumpkin Patch field trip on the original date because we got rained out (That was the saddest day EVER in Kindergarten), so we had to push our date back 2 weeks! After a loooooong 2 weeks we finally got to hope on the bus and head over to the pumpkin patch on a beautiful sunny...and very chilly day, to find our perfect pumpkin. Then just 2 short days later was HaLlOwEeN!! It was a super fun week...take a look for yourself.

Hayride to the patch to pick out our pumpkin!

Trick or Treat at BSLK!

Ok...funny story, before we went to trick or treat with our principal, Mrs. Penney, I heard a convo between a few of my kiddos and they were betting on whether or not Mrs. Penney would give tricks or treats...tricks was the majority, but they were so surprised when she gave treats instead! 5 year olds are so funny!

Had to put a picture of my baby on Halloween

I've got to get better at this...

Okay so I guess it's time for my monthly update haha. I don't know what the deal is this year with me not updating my blog very often. I think about it all the time, but then I find other work that needs to get done either at school or at home. Life is just a little overwhelming at the least that's what I am telling myself. 

Alrighty, SO since we last spoke we have had tons of fun in kindergarten. After our week of teddy bears we covered several different themes...
Halloween and Scarecrows

I used a lot of the same centers from last year, and any new ideas came from my dear sweet coworker Jamie Mayas over at Mrs. Mayas' Kindergarten...don't know how I would make it through a year without her.

On top of learning about all the aforementioned themes, we also had famous author Mike Artell come and spend some time with our kiddos, some special football visitors came to read to us during "Red Ribbon Week," and we had a visit from Sparky the fire dog and he taught us some things about fire safety.
