Help students practice letter recognition with these fun search and find "craftivities." Children choose a fall template, trace it, cut it out and then search for upper and lowercase letters that begin with that particular shape: i.e. a child who chooses an apple, will look for Aa's. They circle and count the letters as they go. The matching worksheet, has a child predict how many letters they think they will find. Later, they fill in the rest of the data. Two graphing extensions are also included.
