Mrs. Simon's 2nd graders are using Number Talks to discuss how to solve a particular mental math problem. The focus is not on the correct answer, but on all the possible methods of finding the answer. Each student has a chance to explain their method, and everyone will get a chance to see different strategies to understand that there are multiple ways to do the same math problem.

In Mrs. Martinez's 2nd grade class, students started by learning the anatomy/parts of a pumpkin. Then they estimated how many seeds the large pumpkin would have compared to a medium and small pumpkin.

Then they removed all the seeds to begin counting.  The students from the big pumpkin put seeds in groups of 10s, the medium pumpkin counters put the seeds in groups of 5s, and the small Pumpkin counters put them in groups of 2s. Students were able to compare their estimation to the count to see how close they were.  

To top off the lesson, students got to eat the cooked pumpkin seeds!

In Mrs. Douty's kinder class, students are learning all about pumpkins.  They got to explore a pumpkin, inside and out and use their knowledge from what they read to create a Jack-O-Lantern of their own.  They even got to enjoy a piece of pumpkin pie, YUM!
