Your students will have a rhyming good time as they count down the days until Halloween with the witch from
Erica Silverman's wonderful story, BIG PUMPKIN!
This book is one of my favorite read alouds during October because it not only helps young learners develop phonemic awareness and story sequencing skills, it also teaches a lovely lesson about the importance of teamwork!
Please see the preview for a closer look at the variety of activities that are included in this literacy pack:
*RHYMING SCOOT AND/OR MATCHING GAME--12 pairs of color rhyming words based on vocabulary from the story and two follow-up worksheets for review or assessment.
*POCKET CHART CHANT--Color sentence strips and rhyming word cards for A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO, a fun song/chant based on the traditional folk song, A-HUNTING WE WILL GO.
*CLASS BOOK--Cover page, writing template, illustration page, and holiday word bank (color/black & white) for students to use
to create their own verse for A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO.
*READER'S THEATER/FLUENCY FOLDERS--Cover page, story/song lyric pages for student Reader's Theater script/booklet which can be used for partner practice or a whole group choral read.
Repetition, rhythm, and rhyme are three key ingredients to developing fluent, expressive readers! I hope that your students will enjoy this fun set of Halloween learning activities!
