Want more?! Hop over to become a VIP Plato Pack member so you can get all of the tools, strategies and support you need to reach ALL of your learners.
Inside the pack, you’ll find three little reader versions of the classic children’s rhyme “Five Little Pumpkins”: one in color with silly faces, a second color copy without faces, and a black and white book.
Practice writing the letters P, S and T with a batch of pumpkin-themed handwriting activity sheets.
And then play a round of Pumpkin Roll. It’s EDITABLE so you can type in any alphabet letters or sight words under the sun!
And speaking of EDITABLE, the Pumpkin Hunt game is too so you can practice letters, sight words, classmates’ names… anything! It’s a fun activity to use as a literacy center or word work station.
Make sight words (or letters or numbers…) magically appear.
Then have kids practice following written directions with a glyph. These make an adorable class bulletin board.
Write a couple of no prep story starters too!
Also included in the Pumpkin Activity Pack are a batch of motivating games teaching important math skills. First up are a set of write and wipe draw more cards that build number recognition and counting on.
Kids work on reading and comparing numbers with a fun coloring sheet.
They practice naming and comparing 2-dimensional shapes with Spin and Color.
Pumpkin fans draw the numbers 1-10 on ten frames.
Or, for a challenge, they begin adding to ten by drawing in the missing pumpkins!
And that’s just the beginning! There’s an addition cover up game, a batch of shape clip cards and pumpkin ten frames too!
To help kids understand the science behind pumpkins, the pack includes a cut and paste sequencing activity,
And a playful pumpkin shaped life cycle foldable.
They’ll make a life cycle hat, finish a Pumpkins Are… brainstorm and complete a foldable journal too!
