Pumpkin Patch Fall Vocabulary Activity, Grades 1–12

Pumpkins-to me no vegetable has more connotations associated with it. Pumpkins remind me of Fall and Halloween and Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie and pumpkin seeds and pumpkin lattes… I could go on and on! Today I'm highlighting the Pumpkin Patch Fall Vocabulary Activity I have available for download because I've got pumpkins on the brain.

Printable Fall Vocabulary Activity

I hope pumpkins have positive connotations for your students as well, which is why I thought that it would be fun to write little pumpkin phrases using fall vocabulary on little paper pumpkins. I would encourage these phrases to be alliterative, or use a pun, or play with similes-any specific literary technique that you want to hone in your class. As always, these descriptions should include as many vocabulary words as possible–my minimum would be three.

Hopefully your students can enjoy a few minutes of fall vocabulary writing. When completed, have your students hang them up on your classroom door! Are you currently teaching in the virtual classroom?  The Pumpkin Patch Fall Vocabulary Activity PDF can be converted via Google Drive so students can type directly into the worksheet. Check out this tip sheet for converting PDFs so you can continue using awesome  worksheets online. 

If you use this fall vocabulary activity in your classroom be sure to take a picture and share it with me on twitter here or on my Facebook page here.

With the Pumpkin Patch Vocabulary Activity students are encouraged to write pumpkin phrases that are alliterative, or use a pun, or play with similes- any specific literary technique that you want.
