    Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman---one of my favorite Halloween books

    Hi! One of my favorite books is Big Pumpkin.

    If you go to my blog posting below, I've included a few printable icons, and some photos.

    In my blog, I include the following description:
    My kids really like Halloween, so I start early. We all need our fun, right? This book, Big Pumpkin, by Erica Silverman, has everything from funny characters and plot, to repeatable lines, to a vivid setting. In addition, there is a YouTube video that is the audiobook portion (no animation so you need the real book) for kids to follow along---the lines are sung in a catchy tune, with turn the page signals.

    As usual, I've been a bit busy with Boardmaker (getting the original idea from Boardmaker Share) and have a few visuals to be used, and along with a bigger written word ("Drat") which is to be laminated and mounted on a stick. This is a repeatable (short) line in the book. Kids can hold it up at key moments----in a group, the 'Drat holder' position is coveted and shared.

    Concepts for teaching with this book are endless----

    -there's the whole story structure and grammar of it---characters, setting, problem, and solution are very clear in this book
    - Halloween vocabulary
    -character feelings---frustration, anger, happiness, pride
    - push vs pull (One of my kids today was confused by this.)
    - sequencing events
    -on the vine, off the vine--simple position concepts
    - question comprehension
    - if we were actually allowed to cook, we could make pumpkin pies with the kids. (Alas, other kids in other schools can enjoy that!) Following a recipe is a great way to learn how to sequence steps, and a way to learn the language of directions in a functional context.

    Enjoy!!!!

    What a great lesson, thanks for sharing the visuals and ideas I am in the market for a new Halloween book, and like the option of the read aloud on Youtube. It looks like it would work beautifully with the Story Grammar Marker. Are the Boardmaker visuals you show on your blog available on Boardmaker share?
