There's nothing quite like adding a bit of craftiness to a writing assignment, to get your kiddos excited and down to business.
With that in mind, I created this "Welcome Fall" dangler.
I call it that because the leaves are "falling" as they dangle from the ceiling.
They look amazing as they swirl & twirl just like real leaves.
PK kiddos can simply color and cut their leaves.
Run the templates off on a variety of colors of construction paper, so that older students can complete the writing prompt: "Leaves CAN-HAVE-ARE..." on the back of the leaves, then cut them out.
I've included a worksheet for this that you can do as a whole group, or individually, for pre-writing practice.
A completed template makes it easy for you to incorporate.
You can also dream up another writing prompt as well, such as "Why I Like Autumn" or describe fall with some nice descriptive adjectives.
For that finishing touch, my students ran their leaves through a crimping roller.
They came out looking like corrugated cardboard, which makes for an awesome 3D effect that will have passersby saying: "Cool!" "How'd you do that?"
I'm Diane, from Teach With Me, hoping you get a chance to make time for a little crafty creative writing this fall.
