How to Carve a Pumpkin Writing Prompt

By Devany | Labels:
We're in the full swing of fall over here! We've been tallying pumpkins in our neighborhood and trying process art with them, too. I challenged our daughter to practice her How To writing skills this week by describing how to carve a pumpkin as a fun fall writing prompt.

Fall Writing Prompt How to Carve a Pumpkin

One purpose for writing is to explain to readers how to complete a task. I showed our daughter how there were three steps in carving a pumpkin. She brainstormed and drew each step then wrote a sentence about it. 

I've made the How to Carve a Pumpkin Writing Sheet available for our email subscribers as a freebie!
