Fulton Science Academy Fall Celebration

On Friday, October 28th all the Kindergarten students enjoyed a Fall Centers Party between our two Kindergarten rooms and the grassy area in the front of the school. Students decorated cookies (one to eat and one to keep!) and enjoyed a cup of “Spooky Brew” at the “Cookie Decorating Station.” Our little artists painted beautiful wooden frames at the “Frame Station”. After adding a little glitter glue, acrylic paint, a few 3-D stickers, and the commemorative picture of all their friends from our field trip to the Art Barn- this Fall keepsake brought smiles to everyone’s face when they got to take the frames home!

Students were finally able to put the last two weeks of daily morning estimation practice to good use during the “Estimation Station” activity. Parent Volunteers helped students look at several containers filled with treats and prizes and had each member of the group come up with and write an estimate for the amount of items inside one jar they chose as a group. After counting every item in each jar, the child that guessed the closest to the actual number received two items from the jar to put in their goody bag. The other children in the group each received one. Students had tons of fun estimating like crazy and earning prizes until it was time to switch stations!

In the “Storytelling Cave” students helped select and then listened to some of their favorite Fall stories inside a cozy tent complete with fluffy pillows and a cozy pumpkin blanket. During the “Ugly Pumpkin” writing and craft center, parent volunteers teamed up to help students complete a graphic organizer with kind adjectives to describe the poor ugly pumpkin and then make an ugly pumpkin craft. Check out the masterpieces resulting from this activity by the Kindergarten classrooms!

In front of the school, students added points earned during “Pumpkin Buckets” and used pumpkin sponges to transport water as fast as they could from a giant cauldron to plastic pumpkin buckets in the “Jack-O-Lantern Relay.”

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a big success. The students couldn’t stop talking about all the fun they had on Friday all day today. They said it was the “best day all year.” Oh, if only they knew how many fun events they have to look forward to yet in Kindergarten…
