After building the October themed vocabulary word, the kiddos write the word, and draw an illustration to show their understanding of the word.  The October themed words are pumpkin, Autumn, candy corn, Fall, ghost, acorn, leaves, owl, bats, and Halloween.

Differentiating is a breeze with this October writing center.  If you’re kids have mastered transferring, or copying, words correctly, you can challenge them to write a sentence using the vocabulary word at the top of the worksheet.
