2-Day had their first field trip to Farmer John’s Pumpkin Patch this week. We also met Farmer Joe who greeted us with a fuzzy caterpillar and a corn stalk to investigate. We enjoyed tasty tea sandwiches and oranges from Jen in festive bags complete with stickers. On the hay ride we were treated to a handful of mint pulled straight from the field. All the children chose pumpkins and then climbed up onto piles of hay and tractors and under vine arches and corn stalk huts. We brought back a huge crate of warty pumpkins to share! Amazing pumpkin selection (cash only btw.) Back in the classroom it was YELLOW week… Next we are on to BLUE!
The rain has convinced our banana slugs to come out to play! 3-Day had a blast playing entomologist in the yard on Wednesday!
