Reinforce fire safety practices with this easy craftivity, where students promise to never play with fire. The flames are a child's hand prints. (Look closely and you'll see that they've been crinkled to look more like flames.) Older students attach their "bonfire" to a writing prompt paper, (2 choices) color and complete the prompt. I've included a "We Promise" pledge poster for everyone to sign. This craftivity has been up-dated and is a special FREEBIE in my TpT shop.

This fun scarecrow craft is very versatile. I've included "patches" for a variety of standards: Upper and lowercase letters, vowels, blends, beginning sounds, matching words with pictures, numbers 0-30, odd and even, shapes, colors, contractions, compound words, CVC words, and rhyming words. Choose whichever one you want to work on. Students make their scarecrow and then trim and glue on the appropriate patches.

After that, you can purchase it for only $5.95 in my TpT shop. Thanks much for stopping by.
I think if you include a simple and quick craft for students to make and attach to their writing prompt, they'll get more excited. I've included 24 scarecrow-themed writing prompts for them to choose from. As you can see by the photo, there are 2 ways to display children's work. Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board, or look sweet hanging back-to-back from the ceiling.
Make Patrick, the paper chain scarecrow and hang from the ceiling to review patterning, counting, subtraction etc. Make enough links in an ABAB or ABC color pattern, for however many days are in October. Tear off a link as each day passes. Via discussion, have students count how many days are left 'til your Halloween party, field trip to the pumpkin patch or whatever. A raffia bow adds that finishing touch. If you have time, have students make their own scarecrow in a variety of colors. Suspend from the ceiling or along a hallway wall for a lovely autumn display.
