But, here you go. Better late than never!
After Halloween, we decided to try to sprout a few of the pumpkin seeds. We hung them up in bags in our windows and waited and watched. Within the week we started to see some roots growing. after that, the seed leaves popped out and the stems started growing pretty fast. Everyone was excited to check their seeds' progress each day and each others' seeds. Once they began growing out of their bags, we replanted them in some small pots and put them in the window sill. They don't honestly look too happy, so I don't know how they'll do. I warned the kids that this wasn't really the time to be planting pumpkin seeds, so we were just going to see what happened, so that's exactly what we're going to do. They might not make it, but it has been fun watching them grow so far.
We read a book called Oranges! by Zack Ragow. And then . . . we went crazy with oranges :)
Two ways to do the same math: Counting and writing numbers.
And counting and using tally marks - in this case dots.
