Please check the PREVIEW for 6 pages of goodies
in the packet! The thumbnail only shows a closeup of the scarecrow “craftivity”.
In celebration of fall, I'm knocking a dollar off.
There are 17 scarecrow options
in the packet, along with worksheets, posters, flashcards, puzzles, and games!
To make this extra special, fold a sheet of white construction paper, have students trace their hand and then cut once, to get two hand prints for their scarecrow's "gloves". I ran yellow construction paper through a shredder to make the "hair".
Each scarecrow is based on a report card standard
and is a super-fun way to practice, review and assess a variety of skills:
upper & lowercase letters, numbers 0-30, odd & even, skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, 10s, 2D shapes, 11-colors, vowels, telling time to the hour and half hour, and words: SC blend, contractions, compound words, beginning Ss sound words, CVC words that begin with S, plus rhyming words!
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board
For extra practice, when everyone is done, play an "I Spy" game
and give students a piece of candy corn to use as a manipulative. Choose a student to call out a "patch".
Children locate that letter, number, shape or whatever, cover it with the candy corn, and then raise their hand.
This is a fun way to practice and review standards, as well as a quick and easy way to whole-group assess
, as you can see at a glance who is having difficulty.
