It always amazes me to see how many students have helped to carve a pumpkin at home.
I brought one in and the kids helped to carve and write the steps. The BEST part was getting all the pulp and seeds out. Of course they squealed with delight as they described the wet, squishy feeling!
This is when I introduce sequencing words. We made a list of them on the board before we began writing. Once I gave a few examples they were able to make quite the list.
As you can see in the picture below our pumpkin even got a little sick and threw up some of his pulp. The kids were laughing hysterically. Before he went home with a kiddo I made sure he was cleaned up well!
