November 1st

Happy November!!  We kicked it off right with our pajamara party!!  The kids were excited to walk in to our night-themed room and their goody bags of glow bracelets, bat rings, and Halloween poppers!  They had a blast popping all over the room!

Mrs. McDermed read the kids a "bedtime" story, The Little Old Women Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything.  The kids helped by adding sound effects for all the parts of the scarecrow.  Check it out here.

They enjoyed being able to go to recess again!  When we come in we read Ten Timid Ghosts and played a number matching game using ten frames.  They had fun flying around the room trying to find their match!  They did a really nice job filling in their numbers on the November calendar!  I am impressed by their number formation!

After a "special" special in the library the kids came back ready to PARTY!!  Our party was scarecrow themed.  They made scarecrow hats,
 scarecrow face paint,

 and played pin the crow on the scarecrow!
 They also played some pumpkin bowling!
They loved their pumpkin pancake feast!  I am going to share the recipe because it was SO good!  Although you may want to have April Johannes come over and cook them, they were PERFECT!  Thanks for the recipe Amy!
2 cups pancake mix (the just add water kind)
6 tbsp pureed pumpkin
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chapped pecans (optional-we opted out!)
1 1/3 cups apple cider

1. Gently mix ingredients together.  Don't over-mix unless you like flat pancakes.
2. If batter is too thick, add one tablespoon of water at a time until you are happy with the consistency.
3. Pour about 1/3 cup batter onto a greased skillet and flip when cute little bubbles start popping up.  This should make about eight good sized pancakes.

Thank you to all of the mommies for helping out!  A special thank you to Daddy Ratley, not only did he help out but he put up with all of us mommies!!  Check out these cuties!!
