It's Fall Y'all!

Hello everyone,

I'm here to tell you a little bit about my new Fall Unit!

There is something about Fall that I just love! It's probably all the beautiful colors :)

Every year, no matter what grade I am teaching, I take my students outside for a "Fall walk" and we take some time to observe all the changes in our school yard. We then write about our observations and make pictures.
This time, I'll be using my Scarecrow Craftivity to do this (you can read all about it HERE).

I decided that I needed some literacy and math centers so that we can have to "full Fall experience" in our class! Hehehe!

Here are previews of both my literacy and math activities:

This is a list of what you will find inside this HUGE pack:

Literacy Activities:
Word Wall
ABC Order - Both letters and CVC words (to practice short vowel sounds)
Beginning Sounds
Memory Game

Math Activities:

Number Card Game
More & Less (1,5,10)

Anyone want this packet for FREE?? 
Leave me a comment telling me about your favorite Fall activity
 and I'll pick one lucky winner on Wednesday! 
Good luck :)

Have a good day,

Love the looks of your packet! My fav fall activity is going to the pumpkin patch with my girls. The best is when it's a beautiful, crisp sunny day.

My favorite fall activity would be Brendabration, lol. That's what my friends call my birthday. :)

Other than that I like bonfires, s'mores, cider. I just love wearing a hoodie around a fire roasting stuff and chatting..

I would say a favorite is going to the pumpkin patch! Of course, buying a special Fall coffee at Starbucks is right up at the top of the list as well! ;)

My favorite fall activity is driving around taking pictures of all the beautiful trees as their leaves begin to change colors. Beautiful!

We have an annual Halloween Party and that is my favorite event for fall. Since it is still close to 100 here, I am looking forward to wearing a sweater.

I love passing out candy to all the trick or treaters and seeing them dressed so cute!

MikesMom said...

We always go on a ride in the country to see the beautiful Fall foliage and then stop for dinner.

My favorite activity is Trick or Treating, not for myself, but for my 3 year old daughter. She is at the cutest age for trick or treating & I get a kick out of it!

Football season is sooo much fun in the fall! Great opportunity to catch up with friends and family!

Fall is my favorite season and I miss it so much. I live in Florida and the leaves here don't change to the beautiful colors that I remember from my hometown in New York. I have my oldest child who now lives there, send me leaves each year to help decorate the classroom. I also place some on the floor and let each child toss them gently in the air. It brings back great memories of my childhood. ;)

I love taking nature walks with the kids. The Fall weather seems to bring a little snap to my step. Observing and feeling the awesome changes, collecting leaves and acorns to use in crafts is lots of fun!

Love your unit--would love to win it.

Awesome packet! Would love to use this in my kindergarten classroom.
My favorite fall activity is creating a pumpkin patch in the classroom. The kids bring in different varieties and sizes of pumpkins and we go crazy with them. We use them in all content areas by describing them, using our 5 senses, weighing, measuring, sorting, exploring sinking anf floating and finally, carving them on the last day of October. My kindergarten team also has a Pumpkin Math day where we rotate to each class and do a different math activity. I LOVE Fall!!!
