We turned our pumpkins into a seasonal language activity by incorporating the story elements we've been studying in class. Using our read aloud, Wonder, we wrote about the story elements on each of the pumpkin sections: plot, character, setting, conflict, resolution, point of view, and theme. This was a perfect activity for the day before Halloween, and it makes a perfect formative assessment activity (handy for collecting marks in the last few days before report cards are due).
Happy Halloween!!! Here's hoping we all make it through the next few days! :)
