3D Pumpkin Writing Prompt Craftivities

Triple Play is a very versatile pumpkin craftivity, as you can choose to make it in a variety of different ways and for various reasons.  

Keep things simple and do just a front and back for little ones, or make it 3 dimensional (with 3 or 4 sides) for older students, and pick from 3 different writing activities: measurement, adjective practice, or writing about being scared. 

Color choices are another option.  Give students a variety of pumpkin colors to choose from, to reinforce the fact that pumpkins can be orange, red, green, or white, with all of the shades in-between.

Common Core Halloween Colors Activity Packet

This cute little booklet covers all sorts of standards.
Students read the simple sentences; correct the capitalization and add end punctuation.
They trace, write and then color the color words and matching pictures.

A "favorite colors" graphing extension is also included, as well as a color word matching worksheet.

There are teachable moments for pronouns and plurals because of the way I set up the easy reader booklet.

The color spinner game matches the booklet.
Use it as a way to assess comprehension, or hang up the answer key color poster to assist children as they play for fun.  Sweet activities for your Halloween party day.

Teaching Ecology

Click any image to
download activity.
Of all of the freebies I offer, this may be my most favorite!!  This is the first assignment I give my students as I begin to teach my lessons on ecology and the environment.  The activity requires that students do a little research and a lot of thinking about the ecology and the resources of their community.  After completing the ecological survey activity, students will have a much improved idea about their local environment.   Enjoy!

Haunted Onomatopoeia House: Song and Games For Halloween

This haunted house song, to the tune of Wheels on the Bus is a wonderful activity for your Halloween party day.

The packet includes 17 matching picture cards, as well as 15 word cards.

Since most of the words are onomatopoeia words, you have a teachable moment to explain that to your students.  I've included an onomatopoeia poster. 

Make extra sets of the cards and use for games like Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" You can also make a set to cut up as puzzles and use for an independent center.

The packet also includes a super-fun "What's Missing?" Halloween circle game that my Y5's absolutely LOVED! It's simple, easy and quick and great for helping students practice their memorization skills.

Pumpkin Payment

Are you doing money with your kiddos?  If so, I think you'll like Pumpkin Payment.  Several standards are covered in this easy-reader booklet that reinforces coins as well as shapes. 

Students trace and write the coin word, the coin's value, plus the shape word.
They trace the shape and then draw it on the pumpkin; cutting and gluing the coin(s) to the matching numbered boxes.
