Letter and Letter Sound Match in the Pumpkin Patch is a festive and fun activity perfect for the fall season. It can be used for small group instruction, literacy centers, fall party stations, morning work, or extra practice. Students love hunting and picking the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch and you will love how it assesses students’ knowledge of letters and letter sounds.
The first set of pumpkin patch mats have individual letter mats for each letter of the alphabet (26 in all). Give students a pumpkin patch letter match mat and tell them the letter to find or point to the letter on your alphabet line or say words that begin with that letter. Students use bingo dabbers (dot painters), dry erase markers, bingo chips, counters, crayons, etc. to “pick” the correct pumpkins from the pumpkin patch.
The next set of pumpkin patch mats can be used for letter review. They are separated into letters A-M and N-Z (1 uppercase and 1 lowercase mat for each). Orally say a letter or point to a letter on your alphabet line and students mark the correct pumpkin in the pumpkin patch. You can also use these mats in conjunction with the pumpkin picture cards. Show a pumpkin picture card and students mark the pumpkin with the picture’s beginning sound. This can also be set up as a student-centered activity where the student chooses a pumpkin picture card and then marks the pumpkin on the mat with the picture’s beginning sound. Students can mark or “pick” pumpkins with bingo dabbers (dot painters), dry erase markers, bingo chips, counters, crayons, etc.
The third set practices letter sounds (beginning sounds). It contains an individual letter sound match in the pumpkin patch mat for each letter of the alphabet (26 in all). The pumpkins have pictures on them and students must “pick” the pumpkins with pictures beginning with the featured letter. Students “pick” pumpkins by marking them with bingo dabbers (dot painters), dry erase markers, bingo chips, counters, crayons, etc.
Students enjoy picking the pumpkins, especially when they get to use the bingo dabbers or dry erase markers! The mats can be placed in page protectors or laminated and used over and over again with the dry erase markers, bingo chips, counters.
