The Ugly Pumpkin {Book Companion}

Happy November!  Today is a crisp, cool morning and gets me in the holiday planning mood!  I've been working on a fantastic book companion for Thanksgiving.

Captivate students with fall themed fun while meeting learning standards! This 60 page packet is packed full of excitement. What's included...

Build background with themed vocabulary will assist language learners with words such as field pumpkin, sugar pie pumpkin, delicata squash, acorn squash, swan gourd, wing gourd.  I'm following up the reading and provided comprehension questions with the vocabulary to ensure my kid's understanding!

Provided are several options for recording vocabulary words. Option one includes a vocabulary book with clipart images. Option two includes blank vocabulary response pages.
Reread the story throughout the week using my prepared interactive skills pages. Included are essential questions, flip flaps for note taking, and a student page for informal assessment. Each of the above options are provided for emotions and adjectives.

Dive into character analysis with a fun craftivity! Determine how the character changes. Follow up with a response to literature, giving a friend who has been "squashed" some advice!


You'll find engaging comprehension response sheets for compare/contrast, story mapping, plot, and connections.

Lastly, you'll find an emergent reader to provide students with fluency practice with easy to read sight words! Ugly Pumpkin, Ugly Pumpkin What Do You See?

I'm in love with "Oh My Gourd!" by Etsy Seller, Digi Bon Bons!  After communicating with her, I receive permission to create this thematic unit using her adorable art! To purchase the above unit, please click the first image or the image below!
