PTE Pumpkin Parade


Dear Parents, It’s October, that means pumpkins are everywhere! This month our library class will be completing a Book Character Pumpkin Project. We are asking that you complete this together as a family. You will be supporting your students’ understanding of a character as they are learning to describe characters, setting, and major events in a story, using key details in class.



  1. Choose your child’s favorite book or select one and read it together. If you do not have one, take this opportunity to visit a bookstore or the school/public library. Pick your favorite character from the book.
  2. Use decorations,paint,glue, and any other materials to turn your pumpkin into the character you choose. Be creative! Please DO NOT carve any part of the pumpkin, this will cause the pumpkin to rot. 
  3. Complete the character book report.


Please send in your pumpkin and book report between October 11th - October 15th. We will be doing a gallery walk in the library where all students will be able to view and read each other’s project. Pumpkins must be picked up by Friday, November 19th before dismissal.
