Fall Reading and Writing Activities

It might still be hot out here where we are, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the fall indoors.  Here are some of our fall-themed reading and writing activities that we’ve enjoyed (but don’t fit with some of our other themes).

Practice with “the”

Since we were working on the sight word “the” this falling leaves activities from Mrs. Wood’s Kindergarten Class was perfect for us…

Fall Similes

Another writing assignment that the girls enjoyed was describing the fall using similes.

Reading the Leaves

Our apple tree underwent another transformation, becoming the perfect fall decoration.  Again using the same trunk from Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, we removed the green leaves and added more branches.

I used my cricut to cut out all the leaves in different shades of red, orange, yellow, and brown.  Then I wrote our most recent vocabulary words onto leaves.  The girls would add a leaf to the tree after they read the word.

Eyes for All Sorts of Crafts

This collection of eyes that my personal graphic artist (aka my husband) IMAG0471designed for us have been awesome!  While I love googly eyes as much as the next person (maybe even more), sometimes we need something bigger or just different.  It’s nice to be able to choose whichever color and size we want.

What I especially like is that he created so many different options.  There are sheets of all different sizes but the same color.

And sheets of all different colors in the same size.

It’s been fabulous to have so many options.  Whether you are using them for a specific craft or just leaving out a whole bunch for the kiddos to create with, the possibilities are endless!
