Product Description
This activity is great for October and November writing! Super for a focus on descriptive writing, details, word choice, and/or adjectives.

Students are randomly given one of five kinds of pumpkins. Each student decorates the pumpkin, coloring it and adding a face. Then, they must describe their pumpkin in one of six writing prompts (you choose which works for your class). As a concluding activity, hang the pumpkins and randomly read the description papers - see if students can match the descriptions to the correct pumpkins!

Included in this product are:
- 1 page description with detailed directions on how to conduct this lesson in your classroom
- 5 kinds of blackline pumpkins
- 6 different writing prompt papers (2 easy, 2 harder; 1 for each level that allows for paragraph writing and 1 for each level that allows for either 5 individual clue sentences or 5 phrases depending on what you need for your students, also included are 2 with dotted lines - one for longer writing and one for sentence descriptions)
- 1 bulletin board topper sign so you can easily display your students' work

My students love this project; I know yours will, too!

Thank you so much for looking! :)
