Children cut the puzzle strips, sequence them in the proper order and then glue them to a black sheet of construction paper.

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.

The life cycle of an apple dangler, is quite lovely when completed. Younger children can make this as a flat project, older students can add extra pizzazz, by making it 3D.  To do that, simply glue 2 treetops and 2 tree trunks together on the fold.  The 3D apple is made up of a red, yellow and green apple.  The blossom is a coffee filter, with the edges colored by a pink marker.
