Squirrels: One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pumpkins

Pumpkins have been our huge focus this week. Did you know that pumpkins are not vegetables, they are actually fruit? We used small hammers to knock golf tee’s in to a pumpkin, helping to strengthen the muscles in our hands. Singing the song “One little, two little, three little pumpkins” encouraged us to recite some number names in sequence, and we were fascinated with the marks we made using mud and pens on the laminated pumpkin pictures. But best of all was making a pumpkin krispie cake, “It was nice and tasted of chocolate”.
