Instructions for the Activity:

  • Read Pumpkin Spice aloud, or watch the Pumpkin Spice Online Video Version .
  • Print out Pumpkin Spice body and clothing on white card stock.
  • Color Pumpkin Spice's body and clothing. Then cut out the body and clothes.
  • Finally, glue the leaf to the head, and the heart vest to the chest. Only apply glue around the edges as shown, forming a pocket.

5. Attach the legs and arms using brass paper fasteners.

6. Then, on your "Character Word Sheet" color the word blocks, and cut them out.

7. Now it is time to discuss the character traits listed on the word blocks. First, ask the question, " What is an internal quality or character trait?" Then, explain how our internal qualities and character traits can "shine" from the inside out.

8. Now discuss the meaning of each quality/character trait word block. As you discuss what each quality means, drop the words inside of Pumpkin Spice. Use the blank word blocks to add additional qualities.

9. Give examples of times when you have felt these qualities and what the qualities might feel like. Use the "Helpful Definitions" section to further explain these character traits.

10. Finally, apply velcro circles to the body and the back of the clothing. Then, put the clothing on Pumpkin Spice.

11. Finish the lesson by reiterating that these feelings come from the inside, but when we feel them on the inside, others can also "see" them on the outside.

Additional Instruction Resources and Opportunities:

  • Think of more internal qualities that you want to teach, contrasting both positive and negative traits. Write the character traits on the blank word blocks, and add them to the "inside" of Pumpkin Spice.
  • Save your Pumpkin Spice Body for a follow-up lesson on textures.
