My Pumpkin Nonsense Words was a huge hit in the TPT Newsletter. I had many positive and constructive comments about changes with this product.
I thought that this version would be able to fit the needs of many people. It is made in black and white, so you can copy it on to colored paper which is cheaper than using colored ink. I have also included a recording sheet in case you would like your students to write down some of the nonsense words they make.
This activity is great for kinders, firsts, seconds, and even special education students.
They can mix and match the different pumpkins to make many nonsense words. Making nonsense words is an important skill to help students decode longer unknown words with more syllables. Many of these chunks end up being parts of the unknown words.
