Every year our PTA asks each class to decorate a pumpkin for our Fall Festival. They're raffled off for a fund raiser.
This year we got a choice between a pumpkin or a canvas to decorate.
I picked... a canvas! Yeah, I suppose the idea was that each kid might put a thumbprint and make it into a little pumpkin face, but I decided I'd go a different direction on the idea of canvases and pumpkins.
I hung the painting in the front of the classroom and asked my students to think about who might live there and what the pumpkins were for. I told them we'd make a book to go with the painting for the auction.
First they thought, imagined, and talked; then they wrote...
Oh, I do have a wonderful job!
Such creative hardworking little people I spend my days with!
I hope our little project makes a few dollars for our school.
I bet it will.
