1-2-3 Come Make Some Autumn Activities With Me!
Since the apple puzzles and flip-to-find puzzle-booklets, were such a huge hit, I decided to make them for each season and major theme. I just finished 12 fall puzzles and have included leaves, spiders, owls, scarecrows, pumpkins and Halloween in the pictures.
As with the apple puzzles, there is a set using numbers 1-10, as well as a skip count by 10's set. I design every day and welcome suggestions, so if there's a fall theme I've missed, that you'd like a puzzle for, shoot me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll whip something together.
The puzzles are a quick, easy and fun way to get your kiddo’s sequencing numbers. One of my Y5 report card standards, was to be able to put a puzzle together, so these are especially beneficial.
Print off the puzzles on construction paper, or card stock, laminate and trim. Keep each puzzle in its own Ziplock Baggie. Pass them out to your students and set a timer. See who can complete their puzzle the fastest. When they are done with one, they may exchange theirs, with another student, who has a different puzzle.
You can use these each year, or skip the lamination and give each child a puzzle to take home. They can cut their own strips, mess them up and put them together.
Another thing you can do with the puzzles is make a puzzle flip book. I used 3 puzzles for the booklet in the photo. Print the puzzles, and cut into strips. Alternate the 3 different puzzles, so that when you make your flip book, the puzzle picture is now all jumbled.
Glue just the number portion to the top of the 1-10 or count by 10’s puzzle template, gluing all of the #1 strips, onto the #1 square, the 2's onto the 2 square etc. Children decide on a puzzle to "flip and find" and then flip the puzzle strips up 'til they find a match.
