Description

Your students will have a rhyming good time as they count down the days until Halloween with the witch from Erica Silverman's wonderful story, Big Pumpkin!

This book is one of my favorite read-alouds during October because it not only helps young learners develop phonemic awareness and story sequencing skills, it also teaches a lovely lesson about the importance of teamwork!

Please see the preview for a closer look at the variety of activities that are included in this literacy pack:

*RHYMING SCOOT AND/OR MATCHING GAME--12 pairs of color rhyming words based on vocabulary from the story and two follow-up worksheets for review or assessment.

*POCKET CHART CHANT--Color sentence strips and rhyming word cards for A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO, a fun song/chant based on the traditional folk song, A-HUNTING WE WILL GO.

*CLASS BOOK--Cover page, writing template, illustration page, and holiday word bank (color/black & white) for students to use to create their own verse for A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO.

*READER'S THEATER/FLUENCY FOLDERS--Cover page, story/song lyric pages for student Reader's Theater script/booklet which can be used for partner practice or a whole group choral read.

Repetition, rhythm, and rhyme are three key ingredients to developing fluent, expressive readers! I hope that your students will enjoy this fun set of Halloween learning activities!
