Welcome to our Wacky Watermelon Wednesday! We began our morning by greeting each other with baby voices and sharing what our favorite candy is. We checked our schedule and were happy to see that it was WATERMELON DAY! To begin our watermelon activities, we learned some fun facts about the juicy fruit.
Next, we read about the life cycle of a watermelon and you sequenced the steps in which a watermelon grows. After that, you labeled the parts of a watermelon - the flesh, rind, skin, and seeds. You also made new words using the letters in the words WATERMELON SEEDS and you identified nouns, adjectives and verbs that were watermelon related.
Of course, we could not have a watermelon day without actually tasting some fresh watermelon! After you tasted the watermelon, your job was to describe the watermelon using adjectives. Some of the adjectives you listed were: juicy, messy, delicious, and sweet.
Our next order of business was a super fun SEED SPITTING CONTEST! We went outside to see who could spit their watermelon seed (aka a black bean) the furthest. After a brain break outside, you came back in and we created a line plot out of the data from the seed spitting contest.
After recess and lunch, you drew your very own cute cartoon watermelon!
When you returned from specials, we had some serious work to do to get ready for Red Carpet Day! While some of you were rehearsing for your plays the rest of us spent time deep cleaning the classroom. Don’t forget to come dressed in your best tomorrow!
Have a great night!
