Rooted in Reading: Stumpkin (Pumpkin Activities)



Also included in:
Rooted in Reading: Special Editions BUNDLE

Stumpkin by Lucy Ruth Cummins is about a pumpkin that sits on the shelf of a pumpkin stand in New York City. Day by day the other pumpkins are chosen to go to a new home and get carved into a jack-o-lantern. Stumpkin is a little worried because he has a stump rather than a stem. You’ll have to read to the end to see how Stumpkin finally got his shining moment! We also pair with this a nonfiction reader for How to Carve a Pumpkin. This unit encompasses everything you need for a week of ELA instruction. We have differentiated several of the activities so that it can work in most K and 1st grade classrooms. Check out the preview to see the different activities we have included.
