Fall Resource Round Up

A few days away, marks the Fall season.  It's time to take a look at some fun resource to keep your students engaged. 

Fall Poetry  With his fun Fall Poetry Writing Unit, you will find helpful parts of speech associated with fall terminology, templates for writing poetry, some samples to help students get started and task cards to add to your poetry station. Fall templates include the following poetry forms: ABC Poem, Acrostic, Cinquain, Concrete, Couplet, Diamante, Free Verse, Haiku and Quatrain Poetry. A student-friendly rubric is also included.

Fall Math Games  You'll find 5 math games with a fall theme.  They range from basic operations games to creating glyphs. A description for each one is found below:

1) BUILD A SCARECROW MULTIPLICATION CHALLENGE: Students will generate products and develop a glyph based on the products generated.
2) BUILD A SCARECROW ADDITION CHALLENGE : Students will generate sums and develop a glyph based on the sums generated.
3) MULTIPLICATION BUMP GAME: Students will play this game with product from 1 to 36.
4) ADDITION BUMP GAME: Students will play this game with sums from 1 to 20.
5) SCARECROW RACE: This game is played using division of the number 2. Students will choose to be a decimal or whole number for the quotient. 

Fall Writing Paper  This package includes fall letter writing paper and lined paper for emergent and established writers. Art work created includes scarecrows, leaves, pumpkins and an owl. 

Fall Word Work - Silly Sentences for Fluent Readers Silly sentences have always been a fun way to explore sentence building and recognizing parts of speech. Students in grades 3 through 6 will have the opportunity to use subject, verb and complement cards to build and simplify silly sentences using a Fall theme. Challenging verb cards are included with this unit as well as a blank sentence building template, display and label cards and a synonym chart. This is a perfect activity to use in your Word Work Stations or as an extra project for early finishers.
