Cupcake Party and Give Away.... Pinkalicious Cupcake Cookbook!

Yum!!! We were soooooo excited today! Earlier this month my class reached a class behavior goal and earned a cupcake party! This just happened to coincide with the release of ..............

 The Pinkalicious Cupcake Cookbook!!!!!
We LOVE Pinkalicious and found it quite exciting that we got a sneek peek of the Pinkalicous Cupcake Cookbook in our classroom!  Because we were celebrating we had ourselves a little cupcake party complete with some adorable Pinkalicious party favors. 

After our party we continued the fun by reading some other books focused on cupcakes and then wrote our own cupcake recipes in our house area. We could use a few pages from the cook book as a reference to help us with our writing. 

The Pinkalicious Marketing Team is offering a copy of this new release to two readers of this blog. This cookbook features more than 20 pinkerrific cupcakes straight from Pinkalicious' world! 

So if you would like to win your own copy of The Pinkalicious Cupcake Cookbook please leave your name and email in the comment section below.  The two lucky winners will be announced this weekend. =) 

                                                                                                        Good Luck!

A Little Pumpkin Fun!

Well now that the hectic nature of the beginning of the school year is starting to wind down we are ready to begin one of our first themes of interest in our room.  Since signs of Fall are all around us now AND we conveniently take a class field trip to a pumpkin patch it seems only fitting that one of our first units be related to pumpkins in some way.

Besides the usual comparing, sorting and measuring activities my class had a little fun with the pumpkins in some of our centers. Take a peek at what we've been up to...

At our light table the children are able to create their own pumpkin patch using various materials from our art center.  They have fun creating a different version of their pumpkin patch each day.

Also in our block area various representations of the pumpkin patch have been created.  I love how they incorporated the use of our math manipulatives to show their version of Fall leaves.

In our Science center we have been sorting, measuring and comparing our pumpkins.  We've also started a documentation book of our pumpkin observations.
Finally.....It wouldn't be a unit of interest in my room if we didn't write about it. =)   Here are some of their writing samples from last week. Like many other Kindergarten classrooms we are just getting started with our writing workshop time. Our writing skills vary greatly from one student to the next but I love how they are really trying their best so early in the school year!

Over the next few days we will decorate our pumpkins and eventually we will get to toast the pumpkin seeds from our big pumpkin! One of my favorite times of the year!
