WHAT IS INCLUDED?
★ Pumpkin Life Cycle Slideshow
Using real-life pictures, this slideshow walks students through the life cycle of a pumpkin - starting with seeds and growing into a pumpkin. Slideshow comes in a PDF format.
★ Mini Book
Students can read and color their mini book that coordinates well with the slideshow.
★ Pumpkin Vocabulary
Differentiated activities included! One activity students cut and match the words, and one where students cut and have to figure out where each word goes on their own. Also included are vocabulary pages where students trace the words (this one comes with color and BW for your convenience.)
Words include seed, seedling, flower, vine, plant, pumpkin
★ Pumpkin Numbers and Counting
Activities and worksheets for students to practice numbers and counting using pumpkins and seeds.
★ Pumpkin Class Book
Make a Pumpkin class book! This comes in both color and BW. Each page has a number (1-25 plus a blank pumpkin for you to write more numbers if you need). Every student gets a page and can write what they would do with ____# of pumpkins.
★Apple Tasting and Treats
You can bring pumpkin treats to class (optional) and make a graph of students' favorites! Students then use the activity page with a word bank and sentence starter to write about their favorite pumpkin treat.
A blank pumpkin art page is included so students can decorate with paint, pumpkin stickers or stamps.
Included are different activity pages for students to match words to show the changes pumpkins go through. Students also sequence pumpkins from smallest to largest in both color and black and white. These make excellent centers.
★Pumpkin Sequencing Silly Pumpkins
So many cute activities are included! Students must differentiate and match the silly pumpkin faces, write about what the silly pumpkins might say, write the numbers under the silly pumpkins and cut and paste a sentence in order.
Two activity pages included - students can make their own pumpkin patterns, and must follow the patterns correctly.
Beautiful, colorful real-life pictures show students the four things pumpkins need to grow: soil, sunlight, water and oxygen. They can then complete the coordinating activity page where they color, cut/paste and trace the words. A craft is included so students can show what is inside a pumpkin, and students label (cut/paste) all the parts of a pumpkin.
PLEASE SEE PRODUCT PREVIEW FOR PHOTOS AND MORE DETAILS.
I use these activities throughout the month of October to enhance and enrich our read aloud stories about pumpkins. You can use any books with these activities, but I have outlined specific stories that lend themselves to these activities. I will be linking my blog post soon.
