Happy Fall Y'alll!!!  My students love having some seasonal activities.  Here are a few of my favorites!  Make sure to keep reading, because at the end of the post are links to some fabulous fall freebies!

1.  Candy Corn Letters and Sounds!  Students can match upper case letters and lower case letters.  They can also match the letter to the picture with the matching beginning sound.  

This set also comes with candy corns that students match the picture with the correct beginning sound.

2.  Phonemic Awareness Mats and Letter Sound Activities.  This set has lots of different activities.  I found these small squishy balls and these sprinting spiders at the Target Dollar Spot.  As I say the word, students can push the ball up for each sound they hear.  You can also laminate the Sound Boxes and it comes with a variety of pictures that students can write the letters in each sound box.

Finally, this set has 16 different fall pictures and upper and lower case letters.  This Letter Practice mat, allows students to match the picture with the correct letter. 

3.  This is something I have used with my students that are already reading at least at a D+ level in the fall.  Students practice sorting the short and long vowel words.


This QR Code freebie allows students to practice reading simple CVC sentences.  Students have to figure out the missing word.  For example, For example: My ____ is red. (hat, big, mad)

This sight word matching game is free in my store!

Room on the Broom is a great fall book to read aloud to students.  The book has lots of rhymes and is fun to read!  Students will be able to pick up on the rhymes very quickly!  It is also a great book to incorporate story elements.

This book is great for after reading strategies and teaching text structure!  

I thought I would focus on two areas.  The first is  problems and solutions.  In the book, there are lots of problems and lots of solutions!!

- The witch drops her hat, and a dog brings it back.
- The witch looses her bow, and a bird finds it.
- The witch drops her wand, and a frog finds it.
- A dragon tries to take the witch, the animals trick it.

Using this graphic organizer, students can pick one of their favorite problems and solutions in the story.

Room on a Broom is also great to teach sequencing!  The witch has very bad luck, and there are lots of events for students to track.  This graphic organizer helps students keep track of the sequence of events. 

You can download both organizers here for free!

I'm always looking for ways for students to practice sight words!  You can check more differentiated ideas out on my Pinterest Board.

I love how easily this could be made into a differentiated workstation!

Here is another way to differentiate sight words.

I love making "easy" fall treats.  This looks perfect!!  I love anything with almond bark!  Add some popcorn and candy!! YUM!

I've been looking for a cool fall decorations for my front porch.
I saw something similar at Lowes for $70!! I know I could make it for much less!

I thought the spider web on the ground was too cute!
