PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I LOVE cooking in my classroom!!! And I love it even more when I can make it super educational! This unit includes reading and writing!

This is a fun way to make informational text meaningful! Also, since the focus is just on pumpkins, it is the perfect project for fall, Halloween or even Thanksgiving!

First, have students read the recipe and answer comprehension questions. This could be done whole group, in guided reading groups or as a literacy center.

Next, have students use the recipe to put the sequencing cards in the correct order and record their answers. This would be best in a guided reading group or as a literacy center.

Then, make the bread in your classroom!!! Have students help with the measuring and following the directions. While the bread is cooking you can start the adjective activity. Have students record as many adjectives as they can about how the bread smells. Once the bread is ready to eat, they can finish with adjectives about the looks, feel and taste!

Finally, have your students do some pumpkin writing. I
Have included a transition word poster, several planners and writing paper. You may want to have your kids write about how to carve a pumpkin or how they think you would make a pumpkin pie. Or have them write a personal narrative about making pumpkin bread at school to share with their parents. I also included blank writing paper if you have a different prompt in mind.

Happy fall!
