There are 17 scarecrow options in the packet, along with worksheets, posters, flashcards, puzzles, and games!

Teacher Comments:

  • "Extraordinary resource that is jam packed with so many ideas and activities. Scarecrow patches...and puzzles, to games and literacy ideas and on and on! Wow!"

  • "This is AWESOME!" "My students had so much fun making these scarecrows!"
  • "Engaging, practical. Saves time."
  • "This is absolutely brilliant! I love this!!"

  • "Where do I begin? There was so much in this one packet! My kids loved the scarecrow craftivity - they wanted to make more than one! The CVC cards are great - as is the rest of this packet!"

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 & half hour, plus words: SC blend, contractions, compound words, beginning Ss sound words, CVC words that begin with S, plus rhyming words!

You'll enjoy the many options, which makes it super-easy to differentiate.

Teacher Comments:

  • "This is a great activity. With many ways to differentiate."
  • "So much variety in one pack!"
  • "We loved this resource! It was super cute and the kiddos loved making them. I loved that I could easily differentiate the patches to meet whatever needs the kiddos had and what goals they were working on."

Completed projects make an absolutely adorable bulletin board too.

Teacher Comments:

  • "I loved it! Perfect for a bulletin board."
  • "I really love this craft with a purpose. It was so cute to display and my students loved doing it."

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.

  • Be sure & check the PREVIEW for lots of samples.
