Pumpkin Book Report Freebie!

Oct 5, 2012 | Fall, Freebies, October, Reading, Writing | 6 comments

I just love this time of year!  And Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!  But many schools are not allowed to celebrate Halloween… here’s your solution…

Students will select a book with their parents and then complete one of the following pumpkin book reports.  Then they will create a small pie size pumpkin into their favorite character!

Sample pictures in full color are provided as well!  I would also suggest making yours on a foam pumpkin from a craft store so you can use yours year after year!

I like to request my pumpkins a few days before Halloween.  This way it gives time for those late pumpkins to arrive and also provides great reading and writing activities during centers.  On Halloween day itself, we do Pumpkin Book Report presentations!  This ensures we have a fun activity even if we can’t dress up or have a party!
Your students and families will love this project!  Click here for your freebie!  Hope you enjoy!  Can’t wait to see your pictures!

Linking up with 2nd Grade Pad for some freebie fun!
And with TBA for Freebie Friday!
And Laura Candler’s Corkboard Connections for her list of non-Halloween October Freebies!

    Oh my goodness! This is JUST what I needed this school year. I have a student who doesn’t celebrate Halloween and have been itching to find fun non-Halloween ways to celebrate. I can’t wait to send this project home!!! Thanks so much for the freebie!!!
