Five Little Pumpkins

If you are needing a last minute Halloween activity for tomorrow, here is something that I did last week.  I passed out the poem, "Five Little Pumpkins."

We read it a couple of times and I introduced quotation marks.  After giving some examples of quotation marks, I passed out each of the quotes from the pumpkins in speech bubbles.

I gave each student a 12x18 piece of construction paper and 5 orange squares, about 4x4.  The students drew a fence, cut out and decorated their pumpkins, and glued on the speech bubbles to illustrate their poems.


I know that tomorrow will be cr-a-zy with it being Halloween and "Book Character Day" at school!!!  It will be an organized chaos kind of day :)
