1-2-3 Come Do Some Colorful Fall Activities With Me
Because of the Halloween Colors packet, I had 2 requests for something similar, that was less Halloween and more fall in content. Both gals teach at schools where they don't celebrate Halloween, but do cover all of the Common Core that I incorporated into the packet.
I decided to revamp The Colors Of Fall easy reader. It's one of my first booklets, before I took computer classes and bought lots of software, clip art and fonts, yet it's one of my personal favorites, as my husband helped me tweak my poem.
He's a stickler for the appropriate number of beats for consistancy in a rhyme. I've included a poster poem to share with your students before they start working on their own booklet.
Children read the simple sentences (lots of Dolch and word wall words here).
They correct the beginning capitalization and then add end punctuation.
Using matching colored markers or crayons, they trace, write and color the color words and then color the pictures.
There's also a color word worksheet, graphing extension and spinner game.

As long as I was on a roll, I decided to whip up an all-leaf themed one, using the same format.
I wasn't sure I was going to use all of the colors, because purple, pink, blue and white are certainly not common leaf colors, but I managed to fit them all in.
As with the other two packets, there's a booklet, worksheet, graphing extension and game. Click on the link to view/download The Colorful Leaves packet.
Anna and Karla were happy about the new additions, and said "Just what I was looking for!" so I hope you can use them too.
Now that I'm calmer, I'm off to try and figure out 3 stupid TV remotes, (Isn't 3 times a charm?) so that I can watch a Disney movie with my grandson. Things have gotten so complicated I'm ready to throw them all out the window! Oh for the days of on-off-and fast forward, with only ONE remote. If you hear a crash you'll know I wasn't very successful... Wishing you a stress-free day.
