Pumpkins Provide the Seeds for Learning

Pumpkins + Math = Lots of Fun 

BPS first grade students recently enjoyed "Pumpkin Day," an annual event that uses the seasonal squashes to explore math concepts. Activities included counting seeds by two's, five's and ten's to measuring ingredients for pumpkin bread. This first grade tradition is always a highlight of the fall season and reinforces skills such as counting, addition and estimation.
