Put your students love of pumpkins to work with these PUMPKIN PERSONALITIES vocabulary and writing project! Students will engage in vocabulary learning through synonym/antonym/Frayer Model and other graphic organizer work. After students study a trait, they write a creative story about their pumpkin who has that trait. Want to take it to the next level?
