Perfect Pumpkins {a Writing Craftivity}

I really loved reading your comments about my classroom!  I worked my tail off the last two weeks, and it's so nice to hear your wonderful compliments!  Thank you! :)  I can't wait for my new firsties to see it this week!  Teachers go back to work this Tuesday, and the kiddos will be back on Thursday.  I'm so excited!!

I mentioned before that I was slowly working on a pumpkin unit...
Well, I'm happy to say that I finally finished it!!
With this unit, your little pumpkins will create a cutie pumpkin of their own...
...complete with a writing activity, of course!  Your kiddos will write about how to carve a pumpkin, using a "first, next, then, last" prompt!

There's space to draw a little picture, too!
Take a look at what's inside:
*pumpkin craft + directions
*How to Carve a Pumpkin writing prompt {primary/secondary lines}
*How Many Pumpkins Tall Are You? activity
*two class surveys
*pumpkin senses
*pumpkin adjectives
*word search
*ABC order

And here are a couple pics from the unit:
If you want, you can pick up a copy of perfect pumpkins {a writing craftivity} in my TpT shop!  As always, please let me know what you think!! I hope you loveeee it! :)

Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day weekend!!!

Hi! I love this craftivity and want to do it with my first graders. My question to you, as a first time first grade teacher...how do you get them to write? Do you model and have them copy what you write or do you let them go at it by themselves? I have students who are struggling to write sentences. I appreciate your advice.

Ms. B./Sra. B. said...

BTW, I'm the first time first grade teacher...I've taught 3rd and 2nd... My last post sounded like you were the first time first grade teacher! Sorry! :o)

Mrs. Ryan said...

Wow! This looks amazing! It's going to have to go on my wish list! :)
