This week, we took a closer look at our pumpkin patch as we were talking about harvest time. What better way to show the children what harvest is all about but to let them go and harvest our pumpkins? The children have been introduced to the cycle of life of the pumpkins several weeks ago. We documenting each process carefully , taking pictures, printing them, gluing them in a book and adding captions depicting the pumpkin life cycle This booklet has been an on-going project and has been on our shelves since mi-September. Each time we brought the children outside to our little garden, I would ask them to describe what they could see:
"I can see flowers growing in the pumpkin vines"
