To pick or not to pick, that is the question! If you are looking for a creative writing project to do with your students during fall or Halloween, you will love this! Students write a paragraph from the perspective of a pumpkin sitting in a pumpkin patch. Their job is to convince their readers to either pick them or not to pick them. This project comes complete with a plan for sensory/descriptive words, a planning sheet for their paragraph, paper for a rough draft and neat sheet for publication, a template for the pumpkin craft, and actual classroom samples of the end product. My students always have a blast creating these and I know your students will love it, too.
