The Gigantic Pumpkin is a 14 page blackline reader based on the opposite premise as The Little Red Hen, but with a little twist. It also has two follow up comprehension pages of different difficulty levels. It would work in a Pumpkin, Halloween, or Fall Unit or as a stand alone. It does have a nod to Halloween, but it's never mentioned. The reader has to draw their own conclusion.
The Gigantic Pumpkin reader is created in a half page format to maximize copy, paper and ink usage. Prints 2 copies per page. Just print, cut, collate and staple. There's extra room on the left hand side to staple. The reader is chock full of sight words, which makes it great for reinforcing sight words.
