Don't you just love all the fall colors and the refreshing crisp air that autumn brings. It is a fun time to integrate fall themes into our lessons as we can easily tie in science with math and English language arts. Students are back into the swing of things and settling in to our classrooms and most are eager to learn about fall themes such as apples, pumpkins, fall foliage, Johnny Appleseed, Christopher Columbus, and all the fun, spooktacular events that Halloween has to offer. I have designed a few fall activities for my classroom and I can't wait to get started on introducing them to my students. If you are looking for some fresh new ideas with a fall twist, please check them out at my Teachers Pay Teachers store or on Teacher's Notebook. Students will have fun learning about owls and bats as they do research and read books about these amazing creatures. They will enjoy filling out the graphic organizers, diagrams and writing prompts as they share what they have learned. Students will learn about decomposing numbers and solving simple math word problems with these motivating fall lessons that align with the Common core.
