1-2-3 Come Do Some Leaf Activities With Me
I enjoy making simple booklets that cover a variety of standards, so teachers have an instant math center. You can print and laminate the Leaf Count booklet and leaf tiles (there are 4 sets to choose from) and then keep the manipulatives and booklet in a manilla envelope. Children can complete the booklet using the tiles. Students can also use the leaf tiles to count, sort and pattern with. These are nice activities when children complete other work and are asking: "What do I do now?"
If you're looking for a whole group activity, run off copies of the booklet for each student. They can make leaves by using a Q-tip, mini-bingo dauber, leaf stamp, leaf stickers, cut up leaf tiles, or their finger prints, pressed onto a fall-colored stamp pad. When everyone has completed their leaf counting booklet, read it as a whole group and then send home to reinforce the lessons. I know that quite a few teachers are looking for fun, yet relevant homework to send, and this booklet is perfect for that too. Click on the link to view/download the Leaf Counting booklet.
For more fall number practice, I've designed a worksheet packet with a leaf theme. Children practice tracing and writing numbers as they count from 1 to 120 and skip count by 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's. I've also included "What's Missing?" worksheets where students fill in whatever number is missing. Click on the link to view/download the Leaf Number packet. These are also great for homework, or a sub-folder.
Thanks for visiting today. I design and try to blog every day, so I hope you can stop by tomorrow for the newest FREEBIES hot off the press. Feel free to PIN away.
