Meet Our Pumpkin

As I previously {shared}, our school has a great tradition of decorating pumpkins about book characters.  Each class gets a pumpkin (which are donated) and decorates it.  You can't puncture or pierce the pumpkin in anyway, but the kids have lots of fun with it.  The younger classes tend to have parent volunteers or the teacher make the whole thing...but that's not how we roll in fifth grade!  This was entirely done by my students. 

As a class, we voted on characters and brainstormed our options.  I had student helpers stay after school (with permission) to help decorate.

We voted on Harry Potter and here is the (almost) finished result:

In the library, Harry has a scarf, wizard hat, and wand (aka a chopstick).

Voting starts next week!
