Little Blue Truck Craft and Bulletin Board Set

I am so ready for Fall!  My husband has a few days off from work and my son does not have school tomorrow so we are planning on heading to the Apple Orchard.  I wanted to share this Name Practice activity with you that makes an adorable Bulletin Board display.  This packet includes a little blue truck template with pumpkins.  Students simply cut and paste the trucks together and then add a pumpkin for each letter in his/her name.  Students write 1 letter of his/her name onto each pumpkin to complete the craft.  This craft template is simple and perfect for students with beginning scissor skills.

Here are a few examples of the craft: 
This craft also comes with letters that read "Happy Fall" or "Happy Fall Y'all".  Just print, cut and hang.
You can find this activity here or save for later by pinning any of the pictures.

All About Me Craft

I wanted to share my newest craft and writing activity with you.  I love this craft so much for Back to School or as an addition to an All About Me Unit.  The craft template is simple, providing practice to students that are just beginning to use scissors.  Students simply cut out the pieces and then glue to make a boy or girl that looks like them.  To prep this craft, just copy the patterns onto different colors of paper and have students select the type of skin and hair etc. that most closely looks like them.  There are 4 different writing options that can be seen here.  The templates range from fill in the blank to lined writing pages.  The fill in the blank can be answered by the student or the teacher can fill in what the students says (for younger students).  Two different styles of lined paper are included for students that are ready to write.  This project is a great activity to have students present to the class.  Students will have so much fun as they listen to their classmates tell all about themselves!

Back to School Bulletin Board and Crafts

      I know I feel like this every year, but I cannot believe it is already Back to School time!  I am having a really hard time dealing!!  My oldest starts half day PreK in less than a week and it has me all kinds of sad at how quickly the time goes!  
     I wanted to share a name practice idea and a craft and writing that are fun to use at the beginning of a new school year.  Both of these activities can be turned into a Bulletin Board display or the activities can be hung in a classroom or displayed on a door.
     Up first, is a name practice activity.  I kept the template very basic as a way to practice fine motor cutting skills.  Students simply cut and paste the apple and worm.  Students write 1 letter of his/her name onto each circle of the worm.If you have students that are ready to write and need something more challenging than building his or her name, I have also included a craft and writing template.  Students can write about something they hope to learn this year, something they are looking forward to about Fall, etc.  Since these are apple crafts, they also work well with Fall right around the corner.  There are 2 choices of lined writing paper included.
This packet includes letters that read: "Apple"solutely Ready for Fall and "Apple"solutely Ready for School.
