Isn’t it amazing just how fast time goes by?! It is hard to believe it is mid October already! I live in Colorado and just last night we had a huge cold front move in from the north. Needless to stay, there was a lot of wind and I have leaves everywhere!
This made me think how much I used to love doing leaf activities with my son when he was younger. So…today I want to share a few you can find on My Teaching Library!
Shape Book – Maple Leaf
Students love to create and this resource, Shape Book – Maple Leaf, will give them a fun template to create! Whether they are publishing a story, a poem or a brief report about Autumn (Fall), their work will be extra special to them using these Maple Leaf templates.
Autumn Art | Leaf Mobile
Create a colorful autumn leaf mobile with the included leaf templates!
Autumn Art | Leaf Relief
Here is a quick art project for the Fall! Students will have fun creating a lasting leaf relief that they can keep for years to come.
My Teaching Library has a lot of other fun activities that would be perfect for this time of year! Here are 3 of the many available…
October: Color the Picture & Write a Story
This resources has 20 different October / Fall-themed scenes, students can color the picture on each and then write a story that goes along with the picture.
My Pumpkin Lapbook
This interactive unit for students will allow them to create a cute LAPBOOK about PUMPKINS! Great to use anytime, especially in October or November during the Fall Holidays.In the resource you’ll find vocabulary, vocabulary cards, life cycle, parts of a pumpkin, pumpkin book templates to answer questions such as “Native American uses for pumpkin”, “Nutritional value of pumpkins” and more. Also included: Explanation / Instructions for lapbooking.
Because mid-October often has people thinking about creepy crawly things (like spiders…ewww), I’ve just created a resource for learning the life cycle of a spider…
Spider Life Cycle | Poster and Activities
Want to study the life cycle of a spider? Here is a resource for you!
This resource Includes:
– 2 labeled posters (color and b/w) – life cycle coloring page

– 2 cut-n-paste worksheets
I’ve also just added a new, fun Fall writing activity…
Fall Chaos | Creative Writing Activity
FUN Fall writing activity. Use as a lesson assignment or in a writing center. Using this resource, students will roll one die 4 times and use the chart to help determine the character, setting, weather and conflict that should be in their story. Then, they will plan out their story on given pages:
– Character Planner
– Setting Planner
– Story Planner
After all planning is complete, they will write their stories!
