I am totally copying this idea that I found from Runde's Room. Jen took a cute idea and turned it into a fun language opportunity using Story Elements from the book she was reading, Wonder, my next read aloud.
In fact, they loved the book and the characters so much that we are reading book #2.
The pictures all come from pumpkin pictures come from Runde's Room as I have not done this yet, although I will be starting next week.
She uses the story elements: Plot, Theme, Characters, Setting, Conflict-Resolution, and Point of View.
Jen also provides a link where you can download a pumpkin pattern if you do not already have one. Just click on her name or any of these pumpkin pictures to see Jen's original post.
