Planning Fall Activities such as Poetry Writing, and Reading Comprehension Activities is so exciting. I love planning so many fall and autumn activities for my students to do. I love integrating seasonal activities into my classroom while still targeting core skills.
Today, I want to share a few of my favorite fall activities with you. As always there is a subscriber freebie at the bottom!
•October Reading Comprehension Set: The October Reading set is a perfect activity for you to use as: guided reading activity, bell work, homework, or assessments. Each set focuses on: Summary, Context Clues, Author’s Purpose, Inference, and a Writing Skill. You cam easily project these on a SMARTBOARD or create monthly printable packets- answer keys are provided! They are quick mini passages that you will LOVE using with your students. I will create a monthly theme packet for each month. YOU will love grabbing these sets to use monthly with your students! I recommend using them with grades 3-5- every set has different genres from Poetry, Nonfiction, Fables, and Fiction! Click here.
•Fall Fables: We always focus on folktales and fables during the fall so I created a unit -Fables in the Fall. 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! Click Here.
•Mystery Unit: I also love focusing on Mysteries during 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 the cute pumpkin, haunted house, and ghost notebooks at Target in the Dollar Spot that would be perfect for this unit. Click Here.
•Halloween Bundle: Of course we spend a day or so celebrating Halloween. 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! Click Here.
•Halloween Pennants: I also love my Halloween Pennants- All you have to do is TEACH-GO with these! They are perfect interactive activities for any class! I have the How to Carve a Pumpkin or the Halloween Writing Pennants. Click Here
