Mrs. Abeska is having a contest in the media center this month. Each class decorated a pumpkin as a story book character. Our class came up with lots of character ideas such as, Mrs. Green from the Black Lagoon, Junie B. Jones, Horrible Harry, Froggy and Amelia Bedelia. However, I thought the one that would be most fitting on our pumpkin was THE OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A FLY. Everyone knows the story There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, and as soon as Trenton came up with the idea, I immediately decided our pumpkin would resemble her.
Our pumpkin would not be as cool if it weren't for a few families in our classroom. Thanks Mrs. Pranis for donating a GIANT pumpkin for us to use. Thanks Mrs. Cervelli for carving our huge pumpkin and doing all the dirty work of cleaning it out. Greta and her family took our pumpkin home for a night and spray painted it black for the Old Lady's dress.
I had so much fun putting our pumpkin together! The kids each helped in the creation of an animal the Old Lady swallowed in their table groups. Isn't she sooooo cool?!?!?
Our pumpkin is now residing in the media center. Be sure to stop by and take a look! You can't miss her!
