Spookley The Square Pumpkin Activities

Spookley The Square Pumpkin is always a favorite Halloween read aloud. It’s a great book about being unique, tolerance and perseverance. After reading the book, we completed these Spookley The Square Pumpkin activities .

For all of our Spookley The Square Pumpkin lessons, we used our Read It Up! resource!

Spookley The Square Pumpkin

We start off our literacy activities by making predictions. Making predictions about a story excites the neurons for our readers so it engages them more in the story and helps them focus on the story. As we make predications based on the cover, we record them using our graphic organizer.

After reading the book we go back and re-visit our predictions and write what actually happened in the story.

Then we complete a story map to focus on the story elements.

As we completed our story map, we also identified a problem and solution from the story. Students then complete their own story map. After they finish their story map, they must retell the story using the illustrations they drew.

Spookley The Square Pumpkin Text Evidence

Spookley is a great story to introduce text evidence to students. We listed several characteristics of Spookley and the students have to identify evidence from the text to support those characteristics.

Then we used adjectives to describe Spookley!

Students used adjectives to write about Spookley. They had to use an adjective to describe Spookley and give a supporting reason. Finally, they illustrated their writing.

Spookley Graphing

Students use sticky notes to graph whether they’ve been to a pumpkin patch. After we complete our graph, we use our recording sheet to analyze the data.
