This week we are reading poems in language arts. I wanted to do something fun for writing, so we did a pumpkin poem project.
We read "The Pumpkin Book" and took orange paper and ripped it into the shape of a pumpkin. My kiddos wanted to use scissors so bad, but I wanted them to rip it! Some of them were frustrated that they couldn't rip a circle, but we discussed pumpkins can come in different shapes and sizes!
I "tried" to get them to write an acrostic poem, but some just wrote about pumpkins, some wrote the word pumpkin, and some actually wrote a acrostic poem about pumpkins. I guess if they are writing that is fine by me! :)
P.S. Did you see I made in the TpT newsletter!?
