If you have never read Too Many Pumpkins, it's a must read. So cute! One of my favorites. It's great to teach making predictions because most of the pages end with "until...". We filled in our story map after reading the story.
Here’s an easy way for students to practice their spelling words. Have them draw a big scribble on their page – remind them to leave big spaces in their scribble! Using coloured pencils, they can then fill the spaces with their words.
