This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (25-60 minutes each) addressing several ELA standards using the informational text, “Growth Cycle of Pumpkins”. Your students will enjoy a read aloud, practice identifying key ideas & details, sequencing, and multiple meaning words/homophones.
Segment 1: Students will answer questions such as what, where, when, and how to demonstrate key details in the text.
Segment 2: Students will develop a graphic organizer to record key information and show the sequence of stages in the growth of a pumpkin.
Segment 3: Students will identify multiple meaning words and select the correct meaning based on a text.
These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
