This wonderful idea to turn a pumpkin into a book character is not mine. It comes from a lovely lady named Hope King. I sure appreciate her willingness to share this great project. It gave the students the opportunity to shine as they worked through the elements needed to tell a story.
Look who came to visit with signed certificates! It was our principal!
Such a wide variety of stories and such imagination in turning the pumpkins into characters!
There were lots of 'ohhs' and 'aahs' as each one was revealed,
along with questions on how the work was done!
This project allows the students to also learn how to speak in front of others, using a loud, clear voice.
Thank you for helping parents! I hope you enjoyed this work too!
Our pumpkins now take 'pride of place' in the front glass cabinet and in the library.
Come and see all the wonderful work these students did,
the next time you are in the school.
