Happy Halloween!

We started off the week baking pumpkin pie with Mrs. Kelly's class. Students had the choice to sign up and bake, but everyone had a taste of delicious no crust pumpkin pie! MMMmmm..

Pumpkin Pie No Crust
Serves 8

1 can pumpkin (15oz)
1 can evaporated skim milk (12oz)
3/4 cup egg substitute (or 3 egg whites)
1/2 tsp. salt
2-3 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup splenda (or sugar)

Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth. Pour into a 9" sprayed pie pan. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes, and then at 325 for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

This pie tastes Wonderful with cool whip.

This boy wanted to make a bat.  He used a black lid, construction paper and stickers for eyes.  He was so proud of his work!

Many students created books.  This week we read 'Five Little Pumpkins'.  Some students created their own versions of the story.

Miss. Zilio made green flubber with the students!
They loved the new texture.

Last week, we curved a couple of pumpkins, then baked the seeds.  This week we decorated other pumpkins.  Thank you to the families you donated pumpkins.  Some students practised their hand eye coordination using a hammer and nails. 

Hope everyone had a fun and safe 2012 Halloween.

If you have an extra photo of your child wearing their costume, please send it to school. 
Self photos are great writing opportunities.
