This writing assignment is a fun way to practice using descriptive language and effective story structure. Although the assignment is called The Personified Pumpkin, it can easily be adapted to personify any item.
This purchase includes:
• A characterization brainstorm page (and directions)
• A Setting and Plot graphic organizer (and directions)
• Instructions for the rough draft
• A peer editing page
• 2 sample final drafts
I hope you enjoy this assignment!
*Students enjoy it when real pumpkins and gourds are brought in for the brainstorming session. They are stunned by the variety in pumpkin appearances; this awe can be emphasized by bringing in pumpkins of different varieties, shapes, and colors.
