These Fall Themed Movement Cards (And Book!) get your students moving and help them improve gross motor skills/ and motor planning skills, following directions skills and imitation skills. They also help students learn fall themed vocabulary.
There are so many ways to use this book and associated cards. Use it during circle time, as a warm up activity, as a small group language activity, before or after transitions or a time filler activity that will keep your students' attention and let them get their "wiggles" out.
The teacher reads through the book and models movements as students imitate them. Students can also practice choosing a movement card and practicing each movement.
Text of Book Included:
"I can roll like a pumpkin.
And like a leaf, I can fall.
I can stretch like a fall tree--
And stand up very tall!
I can sway like a cornstalk.
And like an acorn, I can drop.
And when I pick an apple--
I can pick one from the top!
I can pose like a scarecrow--
And jump from hay bales that are small.
And when the wind is blowing,
like a leaf I can fall!"
