Pumpkin Facts Worksheets

You and the kids are going to love these printable worksheets for building sentences all about pumpkins. 

The Building Sentences reinforce emergent reading and writing skills mixed with non-fiction standards.  For example, the worksheets allow practice for concepts of print, sight word recognition, writing, punctuation, and illustrating to represent sentences. Additionally, they are great as a supplemental resource for your non-fiction standards. 

You can see a detailed example of how to complete the pumpkin facts worksheets in the video at the top of the post. 


Students cut and past e word tiles to build sentences about pumpkins: one sentence on each page. When done, they draw an illustration and write the sentence.

To make differentiation a breeze, all Building Sentences resources comes with two levels.

At Level blackline worksheets include the sentence at the top of the page.

Above Level (shown above) blackline worksheets do not have the sentences printed. The students identify the word tiles, and put the words in order to make a sentence on their own.
