Halloween Draw and Tell Story: "The Pumpkin Patch"


Today is Flannel Friday's Halloween Extravaganza Roundup over at Storytime ABC's. This week I am sharing an original draw and tell story I wrote called "The Pumpkin Patch." I just wrote it on Monday so I haven't had a chance to share it with my storytime friends yet. I would love your feedback, if anyone does this with a group. It's a really short and simple one, so if you've never tried this storytelling form, it's a good one to begin with.

The words and drawing instructions are available here.

In the next week or so I will be posting the rest of my storytime plan (at least so far!) for our Halloween storytimes. I'm sure there will be lots of great new Flannel Friday ideas too that I'll want to add.

Looking for more Halloween or monster storytime ideas? Here's some I've posted previously:
Jack-O-Happy by Liz and Dick Wilmes--felt board story
Mouse's Halloween House by Judy Sierra--felt board story
Go Away, Big Green Monster by Ed Emberly--draw and tell story
Inside a House that is Haunted by Alyssa Capucilli--clothes line story
The Ninjas by Barenaked Ladies--felt board song
Five Little Pumpkins (traditional)-- craft stick puppets

Love this draw and tell! I'm bummed I'm on maternity leave in the fall, because it's my favorite time of the year for themed storytimes. Going to tuck this idea away for next year.

Thanks, Rebecca! Fall storytimes are so full of possibilities, I agree. Always new families joining the group.

This is fantastic Anne, thank you for sharing!!
