Fall is hands down my favorite season for setting up crafts and activities in the elementary classroom! Pumpkins, apples, changing leaves, and holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving provide so many ways to bring fall vibes into the classroom.
I love having different formats and options of crafts and activities for students to choose from. Below are a bunch of digital and printable activities that I include in my Fall Activities Pack (which is a total steal at only $5), and a freebie!
Because of the huge number of activities included, it can work great for centers. Centers are always fun and motivating for students since they get to choose what activity they complete.
It can also work to assign some resources in a printable format and some in a digital format to switch things up.
PRINTABLE AND DIGITAL FALL GLYPHS:
Students love glyphs! They are a no prep, fun way for students to get creative while learning about each other. They also make a great fall bulletin board or wall display.
Included in this pack are 2 printable glyphs and 1 digital cornucopia glyph.
FALL GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS:
Fall themed writing graphic organizers are great to use as is, or to use as prewriting for writing about fall. Some of the topics included are Fall Favorites, Fall Senses, “When I Think of Fall…”.
This “FALLing memories” has students write and illustrate 2 or 4 memories they have from either the current or previous falls. It is also included in a digital format.
FALL INTERACTIVE GRAPHIC ORGANIZER:
This Fall Senses Craft comes in a 1-page option or 2-page interactive cut, fold, and glue option. Students write about how they use their five senses in fall on a leaf. It is also included as a Google Slides™ organizer.
FALL WRITING JOURNAL:
With fall’s arrival comes lots of excitement in your growing writers. This is a great way to motivate them with prompts that are applicable to what is currently happening around them.
These writing prompts come in different formats, but my favorite is the cut and paste journal option.
Student choice is another way to encourage them to write, so with this activity students get to pick which prompt they want to use to guide their writing that day.
These free fall vocabulary cards are perfect for a fall writing center. It is also available digitally as a fall vocabulary poster.
These digital and printable word searches are a fun way to interact with the fall vocabulary words as well. The printable version is available for free here.
