Make Patrick, the paper chain scarecrow and hang from the ceiling to review patterning, counting, subtraction etc. Make enough links in an ABAB or ABC color pattern, for however many days are in October. Tear off a link as each day passes. Via discussion, have students count how many days are left 'til your Halloween party, field trip to the pumpkin patch or whatever. A raffia bow adds that finishing touch. If you have time, have students make their own scarecrow in a variety of colors. Suspend from the ceiling or along a hallway wall for a lovely autumn display.
Students will enjoy creating this cute scarecrow-themed welcome fall banner, as they practice their writing skills. Glue writing prompts on the back. (There are 3 options.) Suspend completed projects from the ceiling.
Review a variety of 2D shapes with this quick, easy and fun paper plate scarecrow craft. There's a poem to glue on the back that helps practice rhyming words, as well as incorporating another genre for your students to learn about.

Students pick a partner and take turns spinning. Whatever shape they land on , they color the matching shape on their turkey. The first child to color in all of the turkey's feathers is the winner.
