How cute is this pumpkin patch from Allie at No Time For Flash Cards?! Perfect for a fall literacy center, provide your kiddos with some letter recognition practice {both upper and lower case} with a few simple supplies!

Supplies You'll Need

When all is said and done - be sure to check out No Time For Flash Cards for the complete activity creation tutorial - your mini farmers are sure to have a blast matching the lower case letter noodle pumpkins to their proper upper case letter place in the patch!

To get more mileage out of your makeshift pumpkin patch, consider creating interchangeable parts. For instance, instead of scripting the upper case letters directly onto the paper, create small "buds" with the letters scripted on them. Not only is this is a great way to tie in the pumpkin life cycle, it allows for the creation of a variety of games...

  • Script numerals on the "buds" and number words or dots onto the noodle "pumpkins" to strengthen counting, numeral recognition, and number word recognition.
  • Draw shapes on both the "buds" and "pumpkins" to strengthen visual discrimination and counting.
