Engaging Fall Activities and Crafts that Students Love

Fall Activities

Woohoo, it’s officially fall! I love this time of year, how about you? Pumpkins, apples, sweatshirts, bonfires, football, you name it – fall is the best!  I also adore this time of year in the classroom too. We have moved past back-to-school season and are settling into our routines. It’s a great time to kick off the season with festive crafts and activities that are educational and fun. 

Create a Festive Fall Classroom

We start off the season by creating fall crafts that are hands-on and look great displayed around the classroom. They look amazing on bulletin boards and classroom walls. Add some fall leaves garland as a border and BAM – you are ready for fall!

These sight word wreaths are a great way for students to practice creating and reading words. Students love learning about high-frequency words, numbers to 20, and letter sounds with these fall crafts. They are great for practicing academic concepts and also working on their fine motor skills.
