‘The Great Pumpkin Chase’ is the second story in my series ‘Read! Cook! Eat!’. Tom and his friends have been waiting for his Grandpa’s pumpkins to be ready for trick or treat at Halloween. His Grandpa warns that if the pumpkins get too ripe, they will grow arms and legs and run away, and this is exactly what happens!
'Read! Cook! Eat!' is a collection of short stories which all involve food in some way, and then the recipe for the food of that story is included at the end. The stories are intended to be a fun way to combine the skills of reading and cooking in one resource. Students can read each story themselves or it can be read to them, then they can go on to make the recipe of the text. Each story is approximately 1500 words in length.
‘The Great Pumpkin Chase’ is aimed at 7-9 year olds, and the downloadable file has a 6-page story, a recipe card and a blank page where students can draw a picture. The pages are A4 and can be laminated to be used again and again.
