The Gigantic Pumpkin
This book was created as a
companion book for The Enormous Turnip!, but it would also make a great
addition to a Fall, Pumpkin, or even Halloween unit. The text for this book
demonstrates the need for help and the helpfulness of friends similar to the
story line in The Enormous Turnip!
The text is supported by picture cues and the students will see a little
surprise unfold as they read. This book is great for practicing sight
words and decoding strategies. Although it has more text than most of the
books that I create, the story still follows through using mostly the
predictable sentence frame above. (7 of 11 pages) The book is created in a full page, portrait format with expanded text for
easier reading. Sight words used are: the, I, he, will, you, said, help,
and, to, make, a, into, they, was, it, but, so, that, too, she, when, had, of,
then, with, all, most, their, ever. All text is at
the bottom of the page. The pages are not numbered. (12 pages)
I have also created Pocketchart
Picture Cards for this book. It has all the pictures from the book
already formatted in the size to fit in your pocketchart. Just copy the
pictures onto cardstock, color, laminate, and cut apart and you're ready to go.
The pocketchart pictures are definite timesavers! (11 pictures)
