To Go the Pumpkin Patch or Not?


                                              Fall Field Trip to Riverbend Farm
      For a long time, our first grade fall field trip has been to the pumpkin patch.  This year we really debated if it was time for a change.  We have so many students who go to the very same farm with their own families, that we weren't sure it was worth having the students go there this year. 
      Once we were at the farm today, the answer was clear and it was worth going!  The kids were amazed at the variety of animals and they LOVED getting their very own pumpkin. They said that it was the best field trip of their lives!!  (Not that they have had a lot of years to compare it to!)  I have a ton of pictures of the kids, but since I can't post those, here are the teachers having a little fun of our own!

The Kiddos looked MUCH cuter behind these!  You couldn't see their bodies!  I guess we were a little too grown up, but that's ok.  We had fun!  I am on the left and my assistant, Barb is on the right!
We learned the Pumpkin Farm can be fun no matter how old we are or how many times we have been there!

Like a lot of schools we are not supposed to do too many activities that are directly related to Halloween.  So, we do a lot of things with pumpkins, bats, and spiders.  I have not been blogging much since school started.  I have been so busy and stressed with more and more paperwork this year!  I thought I would at least share some pictures of our spider fun!  The students read and write the poem onto the writing paper.  Then they assemble their spiders!  Also, I put a picture of our pumpkin chart and my wreath on my classroom door.  I made it after seeing one just like it on Pinterest!
