august store updates for FALL 🍂
a happy update: vol II
Labor Day is in our rearview mirror, the sun is starting to rise a little bit later each day, and a Chai candle is flickering away beside me.
Fall is really, truly coming (even if it doesn’t yet feel like it outside).
Last week, I spent my days updating my fall products, and I’d love to share what I’ve got in the shop for you!
My Fall Scavenger Hunt Bingo Game unit was inspired by foraging. When fall approaches, I always find myself walking the woods on my parents’ land, gathering pine cones, acorns, and dried plants to decorate my home. Families start planning trips to pumpkin patches, and the squirrels can be seen busily gathering for the coming winter.
Based on this fall activity, students get a bingo board (there are 2 options), and 10 different fall item cards are ready for gathering.
To gather the fall objects and mark off spaces on their bingo board, students will answer vocabulary and comprehension prompts from the included task cards.
I’ve labeled the task cards by the number of fall objects students gather for answering the prompt correctly. Each level has a different set of skills!
As a bonus, I’ve included a Race to the Top game! Using the same task cards, simply print one page for a group of up to 5 students. For each prompt answered (regardless of level), students fill in one fall object. The first student to reach the top wins!
This unit does require a bit of prep, as the task cards and fall object cards need to be printed and cut out. BUT, if you print on cardstock or laminate, it can be used over and over again in the future!
The full unit includes bingo boards, fall item cards, 300 task cards, and the race to the top game.
The free sample includes 60 task cards and the race to the top game.
Changing gears a bit, I’ve also updated my Fall Social Skills Scenarios unit! We know that working within a theme is important for other aspects of language (like vocabulary), so why not social language? I wanted students to be able to work through social skills within the context of fall-related vocabulary and scenarios.
First up, you’ll get 10 social scenarios. Each short story takes place in a fall setting, such as a fall festival, trick-or-treating, or a football game. After reading the story, the student will answer a variety of questions and respond to a variety of prompts. There are 10 for each story, and they vary from story to story!
I tried to incorporate a variety of different skills—from identifying different examples of body language to rewriting conversations.
Then, you’ll get over 20 task cards that address fall-related social skills in a quick way. These will cover naming rules for different situations, asking questions, feelings, finishing conversations, responding, and fact/opinion.
The worksheets are super fast prep and, like the fall game, the task cards can be printed and used over and over again once they’re cut out.
The full unit includes 10 scenarios and over 20 task cards. The free sample includes 2 scenarios and 6 task cards.
I’d love to know which unit makes you more excited for fall! 🍂
