This emergent reader is a wonderful resource for a study about the life cycle of pumpkins. When children see pumpkins everywhere they just naturally want to learn about how they grow. If your class visits the pumpkin patch in the Fall this emergent reader will help introduce the life cycle as well as be a great review afterwards. It is called “Look at the Pumpkin Seed" and is a printable emergent text that uses high frequency sight words and vocabulary words.
Targeted High-Frequency Words: a, at, can, green, I, it, look, orange, see, the
Vocabulary Words: seed, plant, grow, sprout, vine, flower, pumpkin, jack-o-lantern
