This fall pumpkin character book report project is perfect for the month of October. It includes both digital (Google Slides™️ for Google Classroom™️) and printable book report templates and resources. 

Part of the project is to decorate a pumpkin. Because not all students have the support for home projects and also because I knew many teachers wanted to complete the activities in class with their students, I have added a printable pumpkin option in the packet that can be done in class or at home with limited supplies and will look AMAZING displayed on a bulletin board with the completed printables.

There are a bunch of fun and engaging reading and writing student activities included in this resource, so you can pick and choose which ones work best for your time frame and group of students.

This October resource is great for a

◼️ book report

◼️ remote learning task

◼️ at home reading/writing project
