PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity has been a great addition for our classroom! It works well for our back to school theme, apple theme, fall theme, and Halloween theme! I designed it to work for children with varying ability levels. Here's how we use it:

1. Children place the haystacks on the table and say the letter and letter-sound that's on each one. They then find the matching letter apple and the apple with the picture that starts with the same initial sound, and place them on top of the haystack.
2. For children not able to identify letter-sound, I have them match only the haystack and letter apple.
3. I also like to give some children a smaller amount to match instead of all A-Z haystacks and apples. This is great for children beginning to recognize letters and those learning initial sounds.
4. Some of the other fun things we have done are:
- Having the students line the finished haystacks up in alphabetical order.
- My students like to work together and this is a great activity for teamwork.
- I've also had students want to add more picture apples to the activity. I had them start by picking out a haystack and we talk about other words that start with the same letter. The students start drawing apples with those pictures on them and we add them to our activity. This has been a great way to get them really involved with the activity and making connections!


This activity includes one haystack per letter with a corresponding letter pumpkin, and picture pumpkin.
