PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Part of my reason for writing this explanatory story/worksheet was to show students where pumpkins come from and that they don’t magically appear in stores. The steps in the process of carving a jack-o-lantern are clearly and simply stated so most students can read them independently. Kindergarteners would probably need more teacher guidance. I tried to use a lot of early sight words (high frequency words), so emerging readers could develop their fluency. The worksheet provides 7 multiple choice questions for reading comprehension. The reading skills assessed are sequence of events, determining cause-effect relationships, noting details, and drawing conclusions. These should enhance student performance of common core standards.
If you want, you could begin this story/worksheet with a KWL chart to see how much your students know about pumpkins and carving them out. After reading “How to Turn a Pumpkin into a Jack-O-Lantern” students should be able to fill in the "What I Learned” portion of your KWL chart. The 3rd page of this product is the answer key. You also get 2 color pumpkin patch pictures (I was only able to show part of one in the thumbnail because they rejected my file size). Plus you get one clip art of a jack-o-lantern, which is in color, but showed up black-and-white on my thumbnail tiffs. The pictures could serve as great springboards to discussions or student artwork. The product is on a word document that you can easily print off and edit if necessary.
