It's Pumpkin Time!!!

We are busy working in our classroom!!! This week in Readers' Workshop we continue to work on Comparing and Contrasting using Pumpkin Books.  The books Pumpkin Circle, Pumpkin Town and Ready for Pumpkins are some of our favorites thus far!

Pumpkin Circle: The Story of a Garden [Paperback]

Pumpkin Town

Comparing and Contrasting have worked really well with these books because there are a number of similarities and differences.  We started with Pumpkin Circle, and used a KWL chart to activate our schema.  

Pumpkin Circle is also stocked full of WONDERFUL descriptive words, so it was a perfect time to discuss adjectives. 

Each student listened for descriptive adjectives as we read Pumpkin Circle, and then recorded the words on our giant class poster!

Finally, Literacy Stations this week have a pumpkin theme.  We are working on Prefixes, Synonyms/Antonyms and sorting Nouns/Verbs and Adverbs!!

All of these games are part of my Pumpkin Pack pictured below!
