The Runaway Pumpkin is one of my favorite Halloween books to read to the class. During Halloween week, I read a new Halloween themed book each day. For that week during centers, we do fun literacy activities related to each book. What a fun way to celebrate and learn about Halloween!

The Runaway Pumpkin is a delightful book that describes the journey of a runaway giant pumpkin as it bumps and thumps its way through the Baxter farm, only to end up as a family feast that night.

This unit includes several literacy activities related to the story that highlights:
✔Character Traits (Granny, and Little Lil)
✔The Setting
✔The Plot
✔The Plot Thickens (sequencing activity)
✔Problem, Solution, and Theme
✔Find all the Action Verbs
✔Pumpkin Adjectives
✔Comprehension Questions
✔Spotlight on Vocabulary
✔Runaway Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt
✔Pumpkin Poem compare and contrast
✔Write your own Personal Narrative Runaway Pumpkin Story
✔Writing Rubric
✔Life Cycle of a Pumpkin Activity
✔Quiz and Answer Key

These activities work well for reading groups, centers, or as extended activities after reading the book.
