Halloween Phonics Worksheet: Pumpkin Color by Letter

It is spooky Halloween time!  It is a great time to learn the letter j!  There are not many “J” words out there that children know or use.   Juice…jump rope…Jack-o-Lantern!  Today I have a fun Halloween Phonics Worksheet -a Color by Letter Jack-o-Lantern activity (and yes, one of the letters to color is J!)  Before we get started, I always like to give a book recommendation.  A GREAT book to go along with this activity is Pumpkin Jack.  Pumpkin Jack is about a child who carves a pumpkin into a Jack-o-Lantern and then decides to toss the pumpkin  when it is beginning to rot into the garden.    After that, Tim watches to see what happens next to his pumpkin!  It is a great lesson on the life cycle of a pumpkin!

Handwriting Patch Curriculum
Teach a child handwriting AND drawing using our handwriting curriculum.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
