Definitely Check Out the Preview for DETAILED PICTURES of final product!
This file is a persuasive/opinion writing activity about a pumpkin in a pumpkin patch that’s about to be picked and carved. There’s a story for the students to read or you to read to them…I made it b&w so they could have a copy too if you wanted them to.
Included in this product is a planning template, a variety of primary and intermediate writing papers for their final product, and a jack-o-lantern craftivity with templates. This craftivity can hold the final draft of their writing so it's a GREAT DISPLAY item.
I think it’s really important to model everything before asking students to do that, yet when I do the same writing assignment as theirs….they tend to copy a lot of mine. So…..I used the same concept of persuasive/opinion writing, but used my Christmas product Don’t Eat the Gingerbread Writing Craftivity as a modeling sample instead. I used the same plan and how I expect them to write their final product, yet my topic is that I’m a gingerbread man and am about to be eaten and I use my opinion why not to eat me and then I try to persuade them to eat something else instead of me. That’s what I expect them to do in this Don’t Carve Me Writing Craftivity….just follow the plan and it will take you through the entire process like my writing sample. I hope these modeling examples help you.
This is so fun and my students love it and really get into it....I hope yours do as well!
If you need anything or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me….I’m happy to help in any way I can!
