This week my littles worked on their pumpkin book reports. I used this amazing file from Hope King for all the materials. My students LOVE to read. Just as a reminder, I have 7 second and third graders who are reading between non readers and level F. I let them choose whatever book they wanted but I did pull some easier readers out for students who wanted a smaller selection to choose from. I did book talks for the books I pulled out.
Once the books were chosen, the students read them with me or an aide - several times. Not all at once, but throughout the two weeks. I wanted to make sure they knew the story extremely well.
Then we had hurricane days so instead of spreading this project out over a few days, we did it all on Halloween. Here is our hall display:
I have more pictures but they all have my students in them.
Every.Single.Teacher stopped in to say how adorable these pumpkins were. If you haven't done this project, you should!
