I made turkey and owl themed days of the week and months of the year strips that can be used in pocket charts or in your calendar centers. We also do sequencing and matching with them. Just print ... cut ... and laminate. You can find the patterns here.
I have posted November's Number Tracing Calendar and Calendar Numbers along with other November items to my free printables page (if you do not see them at the bottom of the page please refresh your browser).
The free membership printable this week is scarecrow alphabet sequence which is a great activity for letter recognition and review. I printed the scarecrows on cardstock paper and cut them out.
I then glued the scarecrows on craft sticks and set them out in a clear plastic cup. You do not have to glue them on to craft sticks but I found they are easier for the children to sort through and pick up.
In this activity children put the scarecrows in alphabetical order. You can also do a matching activity by making two sets of the scarecrows. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday October 25th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is where the scarecrow number sequence is also located.
We are working on shapes and pre-writing so I made a ghost shape tracers that worked on both skills. There are eight different shapes included with this set:
I printed the patterns on regular paper and cut them out but you could also leave the pages whole if you did not want to cut. I set the tracers out with markers and the children traced the shapes.
Because our writers are beginners I used the thicker markers instead of the thinner ones to make controlling the marker a bit easier. If you would like the ghost shape tracing patterns you can download them here.
The free membership printable this ghost color clip cards which is a great activity for color recognition and fine motor development. I printed the color cards on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated.
I set the ghost color cards out in a basket along with twelve clothespins. If you did not want to use clothespins you could use playdough or some other kind of cover-up.
In this activity children pick a ghost color card and put a clothespin on the same color that is on the ghost. Play continues until all color cards have been clipped. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday October 18th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is ghost roll and cover is also located.
The free membership printable this week is pumpkin number match and clip which is a great activity for number recognition and fine motor development. I printed two sets of the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I set the number pumpkins out in a basket along with some clothespins. I made had the two sets in separate places in the basket instead of combining them into one.
In this activity children find the pumpkins with the same numbers and clip them together with a clothespin. Play continues until all the pumpkins have been match. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday October 11th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is where the pumpkin number match is also located.
