Here's a sweet, pumpkin patch poster to use in the center of a bulletin board display featuring your students' pumpkin art.
The latest Pete the Cat book features the popular "5 Little Pumpkins" poem, so I designed this "trace the numbers" and "color the pumpkins" that are "rolling out of sight" on a skateboard worksheet.
This nursery rhyme craft is versatile. I've included a blank pumpkin, so students can complete a writing prompt on it; there's also one that says "Happy Halloween from your little pumpkin", which children can give as a card, plus one with the nursery rhyme on the front, which I revamped.
These Halloween crayon resist coloring pages, are perfect for Halloween party day, or a fun center activity. There are 5 to choose from, with directions of how to set things up.
At the end of October, have your students choose their favorite fall book and do one or more of the craftivities in this packet.
The controversy of Halloween, makes a nice comparison contrast writing activity, where students list the positive aspects of Halloween that they like, as well as the negative ones that they don't care for. As a topper for their completed October writing prompt, students make a Jack-O-Lantern using the positive negative art form.
Venn diagrams are a quick, easy and fun way to introduce the concept of comparison and contrast writing. Choosing a partner to make a "Pumpkin Venn Friend" with, is an interesting way to do that. What a fun way for students to get to know each other too. This activity will be FREE for an entire year! Woo hoo. After which time, it will be up-dated & put in my whopping 51-page Fall Venn Friends packet in my TpT shop. For your convenience, I've included a PREVIEW here.
Help students learn to read and write family words with this quick and easy pumpkin patch craft. Students assemble their pumpkin and write the names and relationships of the members of their family that live with them on the back of their pumpkin.
