Isn’t it amazing just how fast time goes by?! It is hard to believe it is mid October already! I live in Colorado and just last night we had a huge cold front move in from the north. Needless to stay, there was a lot of wind and I have leaves everywhere! This made me think how much I used to love doing leaf activities with my son when he was younger. So…today I want to share a few you can find on My Teaching Library!
Students love to create and this resource, Shape Book – Maple Leaf, will give them a fun template to create! Whether they are publishing a story, a poem or a brief report about Autumn (Fall), their work will be extra special to them using these Maple Leaf templates.
My Teaching Library has a lot of other fun activities that would be perfect for this time of year! Here are 3 of the many available…
This resources has 20 different October / Fall-themed scenes, students can color the picture on each and then write a story that goes along with the picture.
Because mid-October often has people thinking about creepy crawly things (like spiders…ewww), I’ve just created a resource for learning the life cycle of a spider…
Spider Life Cycle | Poster and Activities
This resource includes:
– 2 labeled posters (color and b/w)
– life cycle coloring page
– colorful center activity
– 2 cut-n-paste worksheets
Use as a standalone resource or combine with:
* Spiders vs Insects – Science Investigator Mini-Unit
* Parts of a Spider – Poster, Labeling Worksheets & Nomenclature Cards
I’ve also just added a new, fun Fall writing activity…
FUN Fall writing activity. Use as a lesson assignment or in a writing center. Using this resource, students will roll one die 4 times and use the chart to help determine the character, setting, weather and conflict that should be in their story. Then, they will plan out their story on given pages:
– Character Planner
– Setting Planner
– Story Planner
After all planning is complete, they will write their stories!
I hope you enjoy these fun Mid-October lesson and activity suggestions!
