Favourite Fall Pins

Fall is here!
This week in class we will begin our 'Awesome Autumn' unit.
Stay tuned for lots of great pumpkin activities and fall learning fun!
 
Until then, here are some great Fall Finds from Pinterest :)
{click the pics to find the links}
 
 
Bubble Wrap Corn Wreath
How smart is this idea!? Students paint over bubble wrap with fall colours to look like bumpy corn kernels, then add husks. Assemble into a cute fall wreath!
 
Thanksgiving Pumpkin
Students write what they are thankful for, then fold over to create a little pumpkin.
 
Pumpkin Ten Frames
These pumpkin 10 frame freebies are from a great blog I follow called Kinder Kids Fun
 
Thanksgiving Labelling Sheet
This fun freebie is from Peace, Love, and Learning.
 
I can't believe we're only 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving!
 
Q-Tip Fall Tree
So simple & cute! Paint a simple rectangular trunk and then add some branches out from the trunk with the q-tip. Dot on leaves in different colours. (Draw a circle around the trunk in light pencil to maintain a circle shape for the leaves.)

click the pics to find out more
 
GO ON A LETTER HUNT
Make some alphabet pointers using magnetic letters. Use them for a letter hunt around the classroom! Students have to find the letter that's on their pointer.
 
 
 
GO ON A COLOUR HUNT
Print some colour words on paper bags and have students work in groups to hunt around the room for things that are that colour.
 
 
 
LETTER RECOGNITION/SOUNDS
Pass a bag full of letters around the circle. When the song ends, whoever is holding the bag picks a letter and says its name. {They could also say its sound, a word that begins with that letter, etc}
 
 
 
LETTER MAZES
{FREEBIES}
My students love this activity! Starting at the top, they highlight the path of uppercase & lowercase letters until they get to the bottom.
 
 
 
NAME PRINTING PAGES
{FREEBIES}
These free, customizable pages can be used to teach your students how to print their names properly. It can be part of a writing centre at the beginning of the year, or can even be sent home for extra practice!
