Pumpkin Characters

We just completed a project that involved the whole family. Pumpkin Characters! I had of course seen this idea on several Pinterest sites and loved the idea. Each student choose a book to read with their family. Then they were to pick a character from the book and turn a pumpkin into that character with the help of the whole family. Students also wrote a short book report. Take a look at these adorable pumpkins:

We displayed them in the  library for all the other classes to see when they visit. I should add that this was a whole third grade team project but the pics are just my class.
           One more thing - Nikki from Melonheadz, who has adopted my class for the year sent us another care package. We wrote her friendly letters after the first package arrived and asked lots of questions about where she lives ( Utah!). My class is fascinated about somewhere so far away from us here in good ol' S.C. Here we are with our goodies. Thank you Nikki!
