PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There's nothing quite like adding a bit of craftiness to a writing assignment, to get your kiddos excited and down to business.

With that in mind, I created this "Welcome Fall" dangler.

I call it that because the leaves are "falling" as they dangle from the ceiling.
They look amazing as they swirl & twirl just like real leaves.

PK kiddos can simply color and cut their leaves.

Run the templates off on a variety of colors of construction paper, so that older students can complete the writing prompt: "Leaves CAN-HAVE-ARE..." on the back of the leaves, then cut them out.

I've included a worksheet for this that you can do as a whole group, or individually, for pre-writing practice.
A completed template makes it easy for you to incorporate.

You can also dream up another writing prompt as well, such as "Why I Like Autumn" or describe fall with some nice descriptive adjectives.

I tossed these into Diane's Dollar Deals, to make adding that excitement inexpensive, quick, easy & of course super-fun.

For that finishing touch, my students ran their leaves through a crimping roller.

They came out looking like corrugated cardboard, which makes for an awesome 3D effect that will have passersby saying: "Cool!" "How'd you do that?"

I'm Diane, from Teach With Me, hoping you get a chance to make time for a little crafty creative writing this fall.
