Teach secondary colors by having students mix yellow and blue to make a green wreath. When dry, they add red finger-print holly berries, a bow and a poem in the center.
Make the large turkey head shapes and use them for a cute November bulletin board, review or interesting way to assess. Students can choose their favorite shape and turn it into the body of a turkey by adding the construction paper parts.
Students write something that they are thankful for on each leaf. There are several options for making this fall writing-prompt wreath. Adding a school photo as well as some glitter, gives them that finishing touch. These make a wonderful November bulletin board too.
Your room will smell delicious when you make these acorns that are sprinkled with ground cinnamon & /or ground cloves. Practice name writing with the glitter acorns. Both make cute borders for your November bulletin board featuring student work.
This is a quick and easy autumn "craftivity" with awesome results. Completed projects make a wonderful fall bulletin board. Students sharpen old peeled crayons and sprinkle the shavings on one of 7 bare tree templates. An adult presses a warm iron on top of a sheet of waxed paper that covers the child's creation. The shavings blend to make more colors. For a bit of pizzazz, mount on black construction paper.
Rip and tear activities are a super way to strengthen children's finger muscles, and increase their dexterity. Completed projects make a lovely bulletin board or hallway display.
Students peel red, yellow and green broken crayons and then "shave" them with a crayon sharpener to make a small pile. Children pinch a bit and sprinkle the shavings on the apple that they cut out, being careful not to get any on the area where the poem is. Teacher puts a piece of wax paper on the top and then presses down for a few seconds, with an iron on its lowest setting.
Gently peel back to reveal the awesome effects. Students add a construction paper leaf and stem, and write their name on the leaf. Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board, or can be hung back-to-back from the ceiling, by punching a hole in the stem and tying on a piece of yarn.
There are 3 Life Cycle of an Apple craftivities in this packet + 2 different apple life cycle templates to choose from. Children can color, cut and glue their life cycle to an apple, apple tree, or apple pie plate, or use the photographs instead of the coloring clip art.
There is a front and back to the apple and apple tree projects. Completed projects look wonderful dangling from the ceiling. The apple pie life cycle makes a sweet bulletin board. I spray the pie slice with apple spice fragrance for the finishing touch.
