Pumpkin Beginning Sounds Write the Room
I’ve been wanting to create a few write the room and count the room activities and I finally got around to it!
This pumpkin beginning sounds write the room activity is going to add fun and movement to your literacy centers this fall.
It gives kids a chance to get up and move around the room while learning the alphabet, letter sounds, and letter formation.
It is jam-packed with learning opportunities!
Differentiated Pumpkin Alphabet Activity
Work on the first half of the alphabet or the second depending on which letters and sounds each group of students needs to work on.
You could even cut the recording sheets in half for students who would benefit by having less letters to work on at once.
The recording sheets are also differentiated for you. There is a version with a tracing guide for each letter.
This is helpful to students who need more support with deciphering which letter is being represented on the pumpkin cards.
I also chose to put the letter on the pumpkin cards because I think most students can benefit from having more support at the beginning of the year.
Students who are able to determine the beginning sound and letter represented on the pumpkin cards will still benefit from the extra practice and reinforcement offered with this activity.
If you really don’t like the letters being on the pumpkin cards, you could also cover them with a sticker or something like that.
Low-Prep Pumpkin Literacy Activity
This pumpkin theme count the room activity is super simple to prep too!
- Pumpkin Beginning Sounds Write the Room printables (button to download at the bottom of this post)
- Clipboards to write on while walking around
- Print out the pumpkin cards and recording sheets.
- Cut the pumpkin cards apart.
- Put the pumpkin cards in various places around the room. Many people temporarily adhere them to the wall.
- Put recording sheets on clipboards.
Students will grab a clipboard and walk around the room looking for pumpkin cards.
When they come to a pumpkin card, they will use the the picture on the apple to identify the letter represented.
As mentioned above, the letter is also shown at the top left of the card for extra support.
Once they determine the letter represented, they will look for the picture on on their recording sheet.
Once they find that picture, they will write the letter in the space provided. There is room to write each letter more than once. This gives you the option to decide how many times you want them to write them.
Students will continue until they fill in all the spaces on the recording sheet.
I hope your kids have lots of fun with this pumpkin beginning sounds write the room activity!
