What is included:
- Twenty themed chevron border vocabulary cards.
- One mini word wall poster. I like to post vocabulary in all of our centers. My students have access to writing materials in every center and enjoy writing new words! This poster is conveniently small enough to post in a small space or on the side of a shelf/cabinet.
- Twelve beginning sounds clip cards. I keep this activity in my ABC center with alphabet clothespins. Students identify the beginning sound, associate the letter, and match the clothespin to the correct letter.
- Twenty-six upper case letter pumpkins and twenty-six lower case pumpkins. There are a couple ways to play. Students can match lower case and upper case letters. Students can draw out pumpkin out of hat/bowl and say the beginning sounds. Or students can “write the room.” My students LOVE to walk around with clipboards and pencils to search for hiding letters! Upper and lower case letter recording sheets included!
- Vocabulary matching game. These cards could also be used as a vocabulary chart as they would fit into a mini pocket chart. For a matching game, I would tape cards to construction paper backing, then laminate. (Sometimes students can see through the cards.)
- Twelve size ordering cards featuring pumpkins, candy corn, and apple trees. Students can arrange cards from smallest to largest or largest to smallest.
-Twelve pumpkins with numerals and twelve pumpkins with dot numbers. Students can match numerals to dot numbers. Pumpkins can be taped around the room and students can go in search of number pumpkins. Number recording sheets included for students!
- Two apple themed board games…”Race to the Top” and “Pick a Bushel.” Students can play by themselves or you can print more game boards and have four students playing as a group. I keep the boards, bingo chips, and a foam die on a wooden tray in my math center. Students can easily pull the game out and it is already set up to play. It makes for easy clean up too. To play either game, students can take turns rolling the die, counting or identifying the number, and covering the apples on the board with bingo chips (or whatever counters you have). When every apple on a student’s game board is covered, then they have won the game.
- Two autumn themed roll and cover board games. One board features numerals and the other features dot numbers that look like mini dice. Using a foam dice, students roll, count, and cover matching number with bingo chips or counters. I found small plastic pumpkins at the dollar store and used them with the game. They were meant as a party table decoration but they work perfectly!
- One “Feed the Crows” grid game and candy corn counters. Again, students could play by themselves, with a team, or with a group of four depending on how many game boards you print out or use. This is another roll and cover game to be used with dice and counters. A cute idea would be to use real candy corn or even popped popcorn with the game! I have included circle candy corn counters to be laminated, cut out, and used with the game. I invested in a Scotch laminator my first year of teaching and now I laminate everything! The laminating sleeves are a thicker plastic and my games hold up better through the years than they would have with the school laminating.
- Ten themed ten frame cards with matching small number cards. Students can use counters to cover and do one-one-correspondence, they can count how many squares are left to make ten, or they can match number cards to the corresponding ten frames.
- Four leaf patterning cards and eighteen small leaf cards. Attach Velcro to the cards and blank area so students can finish the ABAB, ABC, ABBA, and AABB patterns. Students can also practice creating their own patterns with the individual leaf cards!
- Three sets of themed calendar cards in ABAB, ABC, and ABCD patterns featuring pumpkins, apples, acorns, and scarecrows with yellow/green chevron backgrounds.
