You’ll love the versatility, as it’s appropriate for a variety of ages and levels, with lots of options.
The Life Cycle of a Pumpkin emergent reader
, is great non-fiction practice
that reinforces plenty of sight words
, as it includes 37
from the Dolch word lists
help with the rest.
I’ve included a color copy for teachers, as well as a student copy in black & white.
Children trace and write
the life cycle words, read the simple sentences, color the pictures, then cut & collate the pages into a “just the right size” booklet.
There’s a template with 6 on a page
, as well as one with 12 mini-pages
on a one-page
template, so that you have the option to make Itty Bitty
booklets, that are a real paper-saver.
To assist with reading, review the life cycle of a pumpkin with the 12 colorful pocket chart cards
There’s a set featuring wonderful clip art, as well a set with real life photographs
Use the smaller sets to play a Memory Match or Speed (sequencing) game
I also made a bookmark-size
template (with 4-on-a-page) for your students.
The 6, pumpkin craftivities
, also reinforce the life cycle
Nothing like a hands-on artsy activity to get your kiddos excited, and completed projects make an awesome bulletin board
or hallway display.
Because they are quick, easy & fun, and so different from each other, you could do several.
For example, do the flat Jack-o-lantern life cycle as a homework assignment worksheet
, and the pumpkin life cycle wheel
as an independent center or whole group activity.
If you do the “Oh My! Pumpkin pie” craftivity, spritz with pumpkin-cinnamon air freshener! Your room will smell wonderful.
The ”life cycle circles” come in 2 sizes
, as well as black & white
, plus full-color options
, with and without word labels
The packet also includes 15 posters featuring real photographs
of the various stages of a pumpkin’s life cycle
, which make a lovely bulletin board
display, or simply share them with your kiddos to introduce or review the stages.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you and your kiddos have as much fun doing these activities as we do. Happy "pumpkin month".
