Literary Pumpkin Project

I got a little behind in updating the blog because we have been having so much fun in our class! We had the awesome opportunity of choosing the book The Three Billy Goats Gruff and turning 3 pumpkins and a gourd into the characters. I love these types of projects because it allows kids to work together and really allows their creativity to shine through! Thankfully we also had amazing volunteers who helped the students create a plan for what materials they wanted to use to decorate and make the characters. Each group of students had completely different ideas. They all worked together and had to compromise a little here and there. It was a great project and the students were super proud of the end product! Pictures of the final pumpkins to come in just a little bit (I have them on my other camera!!)
