We drive past the the pumpkin patch every day to get to the park and every time Rea tells me everyone we need to buy a pumpkin for. We are a little pumpkin obsessed over here so a pumpkin name and sight word activity is the perfect way to start the final week of Fall on the Farm.

Step #1
Print and cut out the Pumpkin Name (and Sight Word) Template.
Step #2
Write your Lil’s name on the pumpkins, putting only one letter on each pumpkin.
Step #3
Tape the pumpkins to the floor in order so that they spell your Lil’s name. Sight words can go on either side of your Lil’s name.
Step #4
Invite your Lil’ to jump on each letter of their name saying the letter as a jump on it.
(They will also jump on the sight words and say the word when they land.)
Step #5

Play by jumping on their name and sight words multiple times.

Teacher Tip

To mix it up a little bit you could call out a letter and have them jump on the letter you said or mix up the letters and have them jump on the letters out of order.
