In late October the children in the kindergarten class worked on creating their own jack-o-lanterns. Much thought and effort went into this process. Ms. Recke carefully opened all the small pumpkins so that the children could remove the seeds and inside material to prepare the pumpkins for carving. When the pumpkins were ready the children brought their drawings and pumpkins to Ms. Recke who carved each pumpkin according to each child's specifications. The three day afternoon class saw all that was happening in the kindergarten and was quite intrigued. They were pleasantly surprised when visited by a pumpkin parade!

The past few weeks have been a busy time at Woodside School. The children were excited to share their Halloween adventures with friends and are already thinking about the upcoming holiday season. We welcomed a visit from the NAEYC during the last week of October. Classes have been observing the changes in our natural environment. Some of the classes enjoyed walks to the cranberry bogs and the kindergarten ventured out on their field trip to Plimoth Plantation. We also welcomed families and sponsors to our first annual 5K Walk/Run to begin the month of November. Please stay tuned for photos and more details about all that is happening at Woodside School!
