Thanks for looking at these FUN literacy centers about a season we all LOVE to celebrate. These are great for independent work during Reader’s Workshop or during small group instruction for extra language practice. It's filled with scarecrows, squirrels, apples, pumpkins, and lots of other fun fall graphics for you and your students to enjoy.
Thanks again for looking and below is information on each activity and the Common Core Standards they align to.
1. Sounds with Squirrels- students sort acorns for the squirrels into ‘oi’ or ‘ou’ piles . (RF.1.3.B and RF.2.3.B Decode regularly spelled words including with common vowel teams.)
2. Autumn Adjectives and Verbs- students collect falling leaves into adjective and verb piles.
(L.1.1.F Use frequently ocurring adjectives)
3. Picking Proper Nouns- students place all nouns on the apple tree then ‘pick’ the proper nouns to put in the apple barrel. (L.1.1.B Use common and proper nouns)
4. Autumn Details- students match detail pieces with the main idea cards.
(RI.1.2 Identify the main idea and details)
5. Compare and Contrast with the Critters- students help the squirrels sort apple and pumpkin describing words onto a Venn Diagram. This is an introduction to the comparing and contrasting standard. (RI.1.9 and RI.2.9 Introducing comparing and contrasting)
