This is a CLOSE READ for JEB SCARECROW'S PUMPKIN PATCH by Jana Dillon. This SCARECROW boy is full of DETERMINATION to save his pumpkin patch from the pesky crows who want to use it for their annual Halloween Bash. You and your students will fall in love with this book! This week long study focuses on the following skills: SEQUENCING, MAKING PREDICTIONS, VOCABULARY, PROBLEMS and SOLUTIONS, DEVELOPING VOCABULARY, and WRITING. Included are SEQUENCING TIME ORDER WORD CARDS for you to use with ANY STORY. This CLOSE READ is recommended for Kindergarten through 3rd grade, but can be used for struggling students in upper intermediate grades. It comes with DAILY INSTRUCTIONS, EASY PREP PRINTABLE for ELA JOURNALS or notebook paper and ends with a 5 questions ASSESSMENT. We end this unit by making a SCARECROW. You can make ANY SCARECROW project to go along with this CLOSE READ UNIT and you're done.
I hope you enjoy this story as much as I do!
