Literary Pumpkin: The Night of the Veggie Monster

During our Narrative Unit of Study (Lucy Calkins), we used a mentor text called "Night of the Veggie Monster" by George McClements.  The children just love this book and have heard it several times so it proved to be an excellent choice for our Literary Pumpkin.  On Friday, students were invited to paint the pumpkin and three peas that go with the book. Our masterpiece will be on display this week in the school lobby. These are pictures leading up to the completed piece. Thank you to our volunteer moms: Susan, Dawn and Bobbie for all of your help. Stay tuned for "The Night of the Veggie Monster" in pumpkin form...
 Everyone gets to paint a piece of the pumpkin...
We need those dreadful tasting peas painted too!
Thanks moms for all of your help and creating new memories for our first graders!
