Big Pumpkin Printables

One of our most favorite Halloween stories EVER is Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman. We have probably read this book at least 50 times this year (if not more!) We love the silly storyline, the flow of the text, and the lessons on cooperation. Those who embrace literacy know that when you find a book you love, you just don’t read it… you celebrate it! 
I put together some fun learning activities that go along with Big Pumpkin that I wanted to share with you. Just click on the titles of each activity to download the file. Enjoy!!

Big Pumpkin nomenclature cards– This was one of our favorite activities! Recently we tried our hand at some pumpkin nomenclature cards, and while they were fun- they were also frustrating (lots of words that looked very similar, small font, too many cards). This time we played it like a game.

First, my daughter picked three cards (with both pic and word) from the pile.  It was her idea to turn the cards face down- to give it an element of surprise.  She also wanted to sit on her pink stool during the game which meant a lot of bending down…silly girl! Then she found the picture card match. The last step was to find the word match. I love that she had the decision power to pick her cards. And there were less cards to match. And of course it went with one of our dearest Halloween books!

To make the game- print out two copies of both sheets. Cut out the pics and words together on one copy, and cut the pics and words separate on the other copy. Then you are ready to find the matches!

Big Pumpkin pocket chart cards. This is a great way to look at how individual words make up a sentence as well as becoming familiar with punctuation (we had fun reading sentences with a “period” voice and an “exclamation point” voice). My daughter was able to switch out the witch/ghost/vampire/ and mummy cards on the chart as we talked about each of the characters trying to get the pumpkin off the vine.

Story summary paper book– Just a simple retell of the story as a printable book. There are no pictures so your kiddos can create their own illustrations!

Trace & Write word boxes– These boxes are great for kids learning to correctly write short and tall letters. I created these pages to go with Big Pumpkin because handwriting is a big focus of our “school time”.

Halloween Word Ladder– A very simple word activity where the word “bag” changes to “cat” (one letter at a time) in just two steps! Like I said, very simple….

Retell cards (no file here, go to the clipart site to download images and print)- I am in LOVE with the cutest Halloween clipart from Phillip Martin. It is adorable! Not only have we used it in our activities above, but I printed out each of the images on card stock as a visual aid while telling the story. (It’s destiny that Phillip Martin has super darling clipart for all the characters of Big Pumpkin!)

Fun story retell with pumpkin basket, paper bat, ghost potato head, and witch, vampire, and mummy rubber duckies. And the Little People house is the witch’s house, where she goes to make the pumpkin pie. 🙂

Happy Teaching!

Bat Words: Playing with the -at Word Family

Have fun learning all those -at words with these fun Halloween bats!

Playtime ideas:

  • Place bats around the room. Shout out one of the at words, and have your kiddo run and find the bat with that word. If your child found the correct bat, do a happy bat dance! If not, encourage and cheer them on until they do!
  • Play a batty game of I spy.  “I spy a word that begins with c  and ends with the -at sound. Can you find it?”
  • Once your child has mastered a word, hang that bat from the ceiling above their bed. Praise your little one for reaching to the sky! And just think, they will be waking up to -at words each morning! Yay for literacy!! 🙂
Happy Teaching!

13 Day Countdown to Halloween… Ready to Go!

Tomorrow (October 18) is the first day of our Halloween countdown! I am SO excited! It’s not to late to join in the fun….Here is a recap of our countdown ideas (Mummy on the Move, 13 themes, pumpkin patch numbers. Education Cube countdown blocks, and a song) as well as a link to the cover of our Halloween Countdown folder.
First, to aid us in our countdown is our Mummy on the Move (Halloween version of Elf on the Shelf). I read my daughter the little poem I wrote like 7 times before she went to bed…. and she was SO excited to wake up so she could find where the mummy was hiding!! So much so that she had a difficult time falling asleep. (Do you remember those days when you were filled with so much anticipation that sleeping was difficult? 🙂 I HIGHLY recommend doing this with your little ones- I can tell this will be a wonderful new tradition for our little family!
Our 13 day countdown consists of 13 themes to help us celebrate this fun, festive season! Click on the links below to go to my blog post about each theme! Each post is FULL of great ideas I gathered on Pinterest and google searches. (Click HERE to go to my Pinterest board dedicated to the 13 day countdown to Halloween- there are some new pins that weren’t included in the posts!)
There are 13 pumpkins that will help us count down (you can download the pumpkin numbers file from this post) I taped the pumpkins to a wall in our kitchen… classy, I know :). The idea is that every day my daughter will pick the numbered pumpkin from the pumpkin patch that corresponds with the number of days left to Halloween. So tomorrow she will pick 13 since there are 13 days until Halloween, and then Wednesday she will pick 12, etc.  
I also put together simple and kid friendly Halloween Countdown blocks using my Education Cubes. 
Click HERE to get a song I wrote that goes along with our 13 day countdown. 
And finally- While I was getting everything ready for our witch day tomorrow, I thought it would be a good idea to put all our themed activity pages (and any crafts or games that will fit) in a folder. Here is a link to the cover for our folder.
 I am going to show my daughter this special, spooky folder and hype it up as much as I can- she is sorda on strike from learning pages right now. The goal of this activity is to just have fun! Plain and simple!!

Happy Haunting!!!

Countdown to Halloween Blocks for Kids

Can you tell by all the bazillion posts this month that we are excited for Halloween! As most of you might already know, Halloween is my daughter’s birthday. So we go all out and celebrate! (completely random info: i used to hate Halloween until I became a mom. i love having holiday fun with my little family!)
I had a craft day with some neighborhood friends and made these darling countdown to Halloween blocks.

I wanted my daughter to have a set in her room that would be child proof- so she could countdown right along with Mommy! And as soon as I thought about making a countdown set, I KNEW I needed to use my Education Cubes! (Seriously love these- they are an amazing tool for all those kids that need hands on learning!)
I used the number cards in the Education Cube set.  One cube has the digits 0-5 and the other cube has the digits 0, 1, 2, 6 (which also doubles as a 9), 7, and 8.
I made the base out of a kleenex box, and since we didn’t have any empty ones, well…. let’s just say this countdown will come in handy if my daughter has a runny nose 🙂

You can download the kleenex box cover HERE, or easily make your own.
Then voila! You have an easy, kid friendly, educational (think of the counting backwards lessons…) Halloween countdown! Wahoo!

Happy Teaching!

Mummy on the Move! (Halloween version of Elf on the Shelf)

I have heard about the Elf on the Shelf Christmas idea for awhile now. I have never read the book, but from what I have gathered, there is an elf that moves around every night watching the kids and reporting back to Santa if they have been naughty or nice. Sounds fun, and I would love to do that for Christmas this year.

And Halloween.

I searched around online and couldn’t find anything,  so I had to kick my creative gears into motion and come up with my own idea. I came across this fun and pretty easy tutorial on movable mummies from Family Chic which I made. (I added batting to make the mummy more poofy since my husband said the mummy looked anorexic! ha!). Any mummy doll would work- preferably the ones that bend, because then you can have more fun! Amazon has a little mummy doll that is part of a Halloween set that looks fun, and Toys R Us has a mummy plush doll.
Here is the plan: The night before our first day of our Halloween countdown, I will read my daughter this short Mummy on the Move story I wrote (I have to add that I haven’t read the Elf on the Shelf yet, so any similarities are purely coincidental!).
During the night I will hide the mummy somewhere in our house. In the morning, my Boo will search the house and find him (it is a boy, since according to her all the bad or scary guys are boys!) 
I am really super excited to have our little mummy on the move at our house! This is just another fun holiday activity to get us excited for Halloween!
Happy Haunting and as always… Happy Teaching!

  • Have your little ones clean up their house so it isn’t haunted by clutter!
  • Take a walk outside and straighten up any untidy homes in your neighborhood (such as picking up litter, sweeping porches, raking leaves, etc!)
Literature
Inside a House That Is Haunted: A Rebus Read-Along Story This is a book we actually have! Think of this as a Halloween twist on the classic “This is the house that Jack built” story. It would be fun to have older kids come up with their own haunted house rebus stories.

Learning Time Fun
Learn English Kids has an online I spy game where kids search for objects in a haunted house. Great game for those learning letters.

Teach your little ones their street address so they know where their haunted house is!

Popsicle stick haunted house from All Kids Network. Would be fun to make into a magnet!

All Kids Network also posted these easy haunted house lift the flap art project. I know my almost 4 year old would enjoy making this- and how fun would it be to add words- like a bat sticker and the word bat.. just trying to keep things educational.  🙂
I love this magnetic haunted house craft posted by No Time For Flash Cards (love this site!)… a nice quiet activity that is perfect for the Halloween season!

Create your own haunted reading nook!
  • Decorate the area by displaying spooky self portraits made by your little ones
  • Make a spider web by stretching cotton batting in corners- add spiders!
  • Play eerie music or scary sound effects
  • Bundle all your Halloween books into a Boo basket (don’t forget to check the library)
  • Dim the lights, grab a flashlight, and have a bone-rattling read-a-thon!

Fingerplays and Songs 
All of these were found aKid’n’Kaboodle.

The Haunted House
(Tune of “Wheels on the Bus”)
The ghost in the house goes “Boo! Boo! Boo!”
“Boo! Boo! Boo!, Boo! Boo! Boo!”
The ghost in the house goes “Boo! Boo! Boo!”
On Halloween.
The steps in the house goes “Creek, creek, creek…”
The cats in the house go “Meow, meow, meow…”
The mice in the house go “Squeak, squeak, squeak..”
The people in the house go “Eek, eek, eek…”

Haunted House…
(Pop Goes The Weasel)
All around the haunted house,
The bat chased the goblin.
The ghost floated overhead.
Scat! went the black cat.

The Ghost in the House
(tune: “The Wheels on the Bus”)
The ghost in the house goes “boo boo boo,
Boo boo boo, boo boo boo”
The ghost in the house goes “boo boo boo”
On Halloween
Other verses:
The steps in the house go “creak creak creak”
The cats in the house go “meow meow meow”
The mice in the house go “squeak squeak squeak”
The people in the house go “eak eak eak”
We also added other creatures ( monsters, skeletons, mummies etc.) and made up our own sounds for them!

Oh, Haunted House
(Sung to: O Tannenbaum)
Oh, haunted house,
Oh, haunted house
the mansion stands so proudly,
Oh haunted house
Oh, haunted house
its shutters bang so loudly
It’s wooden staircase groans and creaks
It’s doors have lots of eerie squeaks
Oh, haunted house
Oh, haunted house
The mansion stands so proudly

This is a fun mommy craft from Better Homes and Gardens. What a fun place to put Halloween candy!

Fingerplays and Songs 

I had to make up my own mummy song.  Not too shabby, I have to say. 🙂

Mummies
(to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little mummy dressed in white,
Look at me- I’m quite a sight!
If you chance to meet me Halloween night,
I will give you such a fright!

Misc
I love this mommy craft from TLC– it is super cute!

And you can’t mention mummies without saying something about Thriller by Michael Jackson. I won’t be showing this to my four year old- I get a little scared watching it!

Happy Haunting!
