This center activity is perfect for working on beginning sounds. Each pumpkin is labeled with a letter. There are 3 seeds with a picture that starts with that letter. Children match the seeds to pumpkins according to the beginning sound that they hear. There are also 3 worksheets included as well to reinforce the center. Each worksheet has 9 pumpkins with a picture and children cut and glue the seeds with letters to the match. The same activities are included for letters as well. Each pumpkin has a letter and there are 4 seeds with capital and lowercase seeds to match. There are also 3 worksheets that include matching lowercase and capital letters.
*Velcro dots can be added to the pumpkin and seeds for securing. You could also hot glue the seeds to clothespins to help with fine motor skills. Magnets are another option. Place magnets on the back of seeds and give children a cookie sheet to put their pumpkin on. When they place their seeds on the pumpkin, they won’t slide around!
