November Literacy Fun with The Ugly Pumpkin

I LOVE the fall!  I love the change of colors here in the Pacific Northwest.  I love the crisp air.  I also love reading The Ugly Pumpkin, by Dave Horowitz.  It is an adorable tale about a pumpkin that can't understand why no one will choose him to be their Halloween Jack O' Lantern.  It isn't until he stumbles upon a group of squash that he realizes who he truly is...a SQUASH.
My students always get a kick out of this squash, and love the happy ending.  I created several activities that accompany this book years ago.
I finally gave my companion pack to this book a huge overhaul!  

This pack contains:
Pumpkin and Squash facts
Pumpkin and Squash photographs
Pumpkin Versus Squash Venn Diagram
The Ugly Pumpkin rhyming activity
The Ugly Pumpkin Figurative Language Matching activity
The Ugly Pumpkin Story Maps
2 templatespicture option
answer keys provided for all activities
Ugly Pumpkin Craftivities

Head over to my TeachersPayTeachers store to grab a copy of this fun filled pack!
