1-2-3 Come Do A Few More Scarecrow Activities With Me
I enjoy making ABC cards; they don't take that long, so I'm always happy to oblige special requests, even if they come from only one visitor. I think others will also enjoy them as well.
Click on the link to view/download the scarecrow alphabet cards, along with a 3-page tip list of what else to use them for, and some "Kaboom!" cards to make alphabet games even more fun.

Children are bound to get antsy when doing seatwork, so I liked to include some gross motor activities to help get the "wiggles" out. Brain breaks are equally important. I tried to include my theme whenever I could.
One of my Y5's favorite movement-songs was This Scarecrow. It's sung to the tune of This Old Man. The packet is filled with lots of silly rhyming fun.
I hope your kiddo's enjoy "snapping, clapping, tapping, and slapping" as much as mine did. Click on the link to view/download it.
Finally, because it's difficult to fit in science to an already packed day, I try and design things that incorporate some science, along with a variety of other Common Core State Standards. My Scarecrow's Senses does just that.
Students read, trace, write, add end punctuation, underline the adjectives and color. After asking the scarecrow what he see's, hears, feels, smells and tastes, it's the child's turn to write about their autumn senses. Click on the link to view/download My Scarecrow's Senses.
