Looking for a Halloween-themed vocabulary lesson? Study words in context using Zoe Hall's story It's Pumpkin Time, an excellent informational text for budding readers. The spooky suggested words are: buds, gather, hollow, narrow, and vines. After briefly learning the terms, kids practice with context clues by raising a hand when they hear one of these words in the story. Afterwards, they make connections with familiar concepts through given comprehension questions. Visual learners may benefit from the graphic organizers linked here. Consider using YouTube to broadcast the story instead of reading it.
