1-2-3 Come Do Some Fall-Themed Activities With Me
I just love fall. It's my favorite season, not only because of the spectacular fall colors and wonderful weather, but because of the super-fun themes that we get to teach.
In this blog article, I want to feature some of the fall groupings I did to cover numbers (1-10), skip counting by 10's, number words and shapes.
There are a dozen for sequencing numbers 1-10, as well as another 12 for skip counting by 10's. Print, laminate and trim and then store in Ziplock Baggies. To help little ones, I've also included blank templates.
Besides using these as independent centers or something "early finishers" can do, choose 3 or 4 and make a flip book. I give directions in the packet. (A sample is pictured at the bottom of the photo.)

If you want to reinforce shapes as well as shape words, then I think you'll enjoy these fall-themed, shapely matching games. Simply print, laminate and trim.
Students place the colored shape tile onto the matching shape on the leaf, spider, bat, owl, or turkey card.
Finally, to practice number word recognition, click on the link for some fall-themed clothespin number games. Students clip a clothespin to the number that matches the number word on the card.
Pinching a clothespin, is great for strengthening a little one's finger muscles. Children also seem to really enjoy this activity, so it's a win-win. :-)
To make the cards self-checking, mark an X on the back of the card where the correct number lies on the front. These are something different for your kiddos to do for their Daily 5 word work activities too.
I've included a blank set of cards for each theme, so that you can program them with higher numbers or whatever else you'd like your kiddo's to practice. If you like this set, be sure and check out the apple and pumpkin ones.
Thanks for visiting today. Fall is in the air; the sun is shining and a lovely breeze is blowing through my office window. The weather is calling me, so it's time for a much-needed break. Wishing you a refreshing day filled with everything and everyone you enjoy the most.
"Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
