of all… I love seeing all the color and feeling the change in the weather. It
is the time we pull out our fun boots and cute scarfs! This is also the time of
the year when we have established our students expectations, routines, and most
things are smooth sailing in our classrooms. That is why I decide to I pull out
some of my fun and engaging reading, writing and poetry resources. My students LOVE these lessons. Sometimes I think
my love of the activities comes through during my teaching, because my students
will usually vote them as some of their favorites for the year!
I scoured over my many favorite Fall
Activities that work in the classroom to share with you today. I want to share
a few that I found and some that I use with my students. Also, there will be an
activity that I want to share with you to use this season.
is to study Fables in the Fall. I even call it FALL FABLES UNIT. We study and
read many fables. We usually work on this unit for 2 weeks at the beginning of
October. I use this resource and have my students develop their very own fable
with a FALL TWIST to it! For example: the tortoise and the hare might race within a corn
field or a Haunted House. The kids have a blast coming up with CREATIVE stories!
the month of October. It goes so well with the month and kids really get into
this unit of study. We read mysteries and really analyze them. The best part is
having the students create their mystery and sharing them. I usually display
them, the kids take so much pride in these units and published writing samples.
I even found these cute notebooks at Target in the Dollar Spot that would be
perfect for this unit.
important this special day is for my kids and students. So I created a
Halloween Activity Packet with the perfect amount of Writing, Poetry and FUN!
My kids absolutely love the Writing Prompts. A good tip is to place these in a
writing center and let students pick a few to focus on. The roll and write I
would assign as an extension
activity or homework assignment. There is so much in this packet you will have
a blast in October!
any class! I have the How to Carve a Pumpkin or the Halloween Writing Pennants.
