Pumpkin Soup, by Helen Cooper is one of my newest instant favorites for teaching in the fall. If you haven't heard of this book, I highly recommend getting a copy. With the following activities,, you will find a variety of literacy, math, and social related games and activities:
*4 Venn Diagrams, each relating to one of the following themes and concepts: Sharing, Cooperating, Being Brave, and Setting.
------NOTE: The cooperation and sharing sheets must be paired with any version of the story "Stone Soup."
* A Pumpkin Soup Emotions Sheet, in which your students will dictate or write why the characters felt sad or angry in the story.
** A Worksheet where your students will complete each predictable, sight word based sentence by choosing an item from the box that matches the targeted action word in the sentence.
**A Set of 12 Large, colorful cards featuring characters and items from the story that may be used in retelling events or as word wall cards for vocabulary.
** Help Duck Get Back Home Gameboard
** Pumpkin Soup Roll And Cover Game
** A Pumpkin Soup Emergent Reader with a focus on the sight words "The" and "Can."
** Pumpkin Soup Spin and Graph Math Sheet
I truly hope you and your class love this book as much as we do!!!
