Homeschool Pumpkin Printables

This month I joined in with a few bloggers to put together printables for pumpkins. Pumpkins are a favorite part of fall for me. I love decorating with them, large, small, tiny, they are so fun. Of course, I love baking with them too.

Here are a few printables I put together. My goal was to create some items for the older children. I hope I accomplished this. Please visit the other bloggers who also made printables.

The Discontented PumpkinOkay, this is most likely for the younger crowd. The story of the Discontented Pumpkin has a lesson to be learned. It includes a spot for the student to illustrate the story and to tell its meaning.

You can also add scripture on being content. (kjv)

  • Proverbs 17:22 - A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
  • Proverbs 14:30 - A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
  • 1Timothy 6:6-7 - 6. But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
  • Philippians 4:11-13 - 11. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

  • A narration outline
  • A question or two on capitalization pertaining to proper nouns
  • I included a couple matching notebooking pages in case more room was needed for the copywork.

A short poem study on Helen Hunt Jackson's October's Bright Blue Weather.

Helen Hung JacksonThis week, I have another poem by Helen Hunt Jackson titled, 'October's Bright Blue Weather.'

Helen Hunt Jackson (1831-1885) was an American poet and novelist. She was born in Amherst, Massachusetts, where her father was a professor in Amherst College, but she spent much of her life in California.

She married a banker in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she lived for a few years.

Her poems are very beautiful, and "September" and "October's Bright Blue Weather" are especially good pictures of these autumn months.
