You can cover all sorts of Common Core State Standards with this cute Dalmatian Fire Safety Puppy Packet. The packet includes patterns to make 4 Dalmatian matching games: (upper & lowercase letters, numbers, shapes and colors). Students put a fireman's hat on the Dalmatian, then find the matching bone to put in his mouth. i.e. The hats have uppercase letters on them, the bones have the matching lowercase letters.
This packet will be FREE for an entire year! Woo hoo. After which time it will be up-dated and put in my whopping 90-page Common Core Dotty the Dalmatian Fire Dog Packet.
Your students will have fun counting pumpkin seeds, while practicing their number to number word recognition. The packet includes several games, and worksheets.
Here's a cat craftivity that's a great review of all sorts of standards, and is purr-fect for your Pete the Cat theme. There are 4 different cats to choose from. You can run them off on blue construction paper (for a Pete the Cat one) and have students trim, or run them off on white construction paper and have students color their cat.
Here's a fun way to help your students learn how to read number words and match them to the correct numbers. There are 5 ways to play the matching games. Print, laminate and trim the templates and use them as independent math centers. This is an interesting game for a Daily 5 activity as well, and can also be sent home with a struggling student for 1-on-1 practice with a parent.

This apple "craftivity" is a super-fun way to reinforce addition and/or subtraction. If you teach older students, I've also included a template to make a multiplication apple game.
