The pumpkin glyph is a great fall activity for following directions and analyzing data. Students will love comparing each other’s Jack-o-Lantern pumpkins to determine the owner.
The glyphs should be displayed on a bulletin board and used as a guide for writing a descriptive sentence or paragraph (see the last page for coordinating stationary). The pumpkins can be painted or colored orange prior to the lesson. The eyes, nose, and mouth can be drawn or painted onto the pumpkin, or drawn, cut out, and glued with construction paper. Provide the directions orally with the whole class while they draw and color their Jack-o-Lantern pumpkins.
