Pumpkin Project at Tennerton

For the third year in a row, second graders in Mrs. Powell’s and Mrs. Allen’s classrooms at Tennerton School celebrated the fall season with a literacy project. Students were challenged to transform ordinary pumpkins into main characters of their selected books. This project entailed reading a book of choice, analyzing character traits, summarizing the story, drafting a blueprint, and then creating the final product to share with the entire school population.

This annual tradition is something that the younger students look forward to and it is enjoyed by all.
