PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Big Pumpkin, by Erica Silverman, is one of my favorite Halloween stories! It is a great story to build sequencing and retelling skills with your kindergarten through second grade students. It's a particularly good story to teaching problem and solution. I’ve provided several activities for you to choose from:

Sequencing Cards (color and black & white): use these cards in small groups or with individual students to sequence the events of the story.

Story Telling Set (color and black & white): retell the story with details using the characters and word bubbles. Have students color theirs, and then tape onto craft sticks to use as puppets.

Paper Bag Puppets: Have your students make the characters (witch, ghost, vampire, mummy) and act out the story with paper bag puppets. It’s the perfect story for a Reader’s Theater! Students can easily follow the patterned and predictable text to write a script. Use the story telling set to guide them through the story.

Character Craft Project: If you’re looking for an adorable craft project for bulletin board display, this set is perfect! It includes templates for a witch, ghost, vampire, mummy, and pumpkin. Since you get to choose the colors you use, you could use these templates for lots of Halloween books! The characters range in size from 7 inches tall (bat) to approximately 23 inches tall (the mummy).

Please note: the book, Big Pumpkin, by Erica Silverman, is not included in this unit. If you don't already own a copy of your own, you can borrow one from your library.
