Fall brings so many fun activities and moments for our students, like hayrides and playing in leaf piles; I tried to capture that engagement in this unit, Leaves and Laughter! Full of November Fall fun for young learners, it'll bring smiles to you and your students.
Included are 11 Balanced Literacy and Math, Core Enrichment Activities, that focus on First Grade Standards. But that doesn't mean that other grades can't enjoy Leaves and Laughter also! I purposely added core material for K and Second to assist you in differentiating within your classroom. The specific activities include:
~Leaf Picture and Word Match (CVC Word and Picture Matching)
~Autumn ABC Order (Alphabetical Order to First Letter)
~Fall Kids: Who Am I? (Inferring with Clues)
~Nutty Nouns (People, Places and Things Sort)
~Acorn Contractions (Contraction Composition)
~Write the Room (5 Seasonal, Object/Spelling Activities)
~Count the Room (1-10 Object Cards and 11-20 Object Cards)
~Pumpkin True and False (True False Equations)
~Leaf Pickin':10 More, 10 Less (Mental Addition/Subtraction of 10)
~Leaf Counting (Skip Counting to 120)
~Fall Counting On (Counting On Addition Equations)
Just a Note Regarding My Enrichment Activities:
As a teacher myself, I know what I like in centers and I try to make those same pluses available in my products. For example, when task cards are needed, my cards will print edge to edge so on a 4-card sheet, you only have to make 2 cuts. No cutting around each card, which drives me crazy and wastes our precious time. I create, use, and support our "local" TpT clip artists so you can be proud that you are supporting wonderful talent also! My centers are attractive, color coordinated, and well thought out, so your students will be attracted and interested in participating. My activities come with I Can Cards with Student Directions added for each. All the material covered is Common Core Aligned so you don't have to worry about your students doing something they don't need to or not at their level. Each center comes with a recording printable to hold students accountable for their learning, also. All these positives lend well to saving us time, which we can't afford to waste.
