Every year the Magic Pumpkin comes to my classroom and each year my students start eagerly waiting for their arrival. This year they were getting a little anxious when they hadn’t arrived on Monday but then we received this Western Union telegram that put all their fears to rest.
My students write to the Magic Pumpkins – Wendy Witch, Becky the bat, Arthur Magic Pumpkin and Boo the ghost. They ask lots of questions and tell the Magic Pumpkins about themselves.
It’s a great way to have children write in a none threatening way and get letters bad in return.
