Product Description
It’s pumpkin time! The focus of this unit is on original informational text or nonfiction reading, close reading, reading comprehension, basic skills, and lots of fun pumpkin learning.

The packet includes twelve original informational text pages and four pages of student response activities following each text page. The informational text pages are accented with colorful clipart and photos to support reading comprehension and enhance learning. The response pages are in black and white to conserve printer costs. The response pages were developed to accommodate differing skill levels among students so that all students can participate in this unit. TIP: Print an extra copy of the informational text pages, laminate, secure with a binder ring, and place in your classroom library for reading access all year long!

This unit is easily used in large and small groups and in 1:1 settings. For small group instruction, one copy of the informational text pages may be all you need to print. (Print and laminate to use year after year). Print as many of the black and white response pages as needed for your classroom use.
