Storybook Character Pumpkins

The storybook character pumpkins were SOOO cute and very creative!  A big thanks goes to the families who helped make this project so successful.   An EXTRA thanks to those who helped us transport the pumpkins all the way to the Media Center this morning.  I am happy to report that all pumpkins made the long trek safely:-).  Classes will be voting for their favorite during their Media Center time this week.  
I will post pictures of all of the entries and other fun classroom stuff soon!
