Fall/Scarecrow Lesson Plans (Free Resource)

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  Here are lesson plans for your Scarecrow week.  Reading, writing, math, treats and crafts make this easy for parents and fun for kids.  I even have a free little file for you!


The Books

I love using Bill Martin’s Barn Dance for our scarecrow theme.

A few more books on Scarecrows:

The Scarecrow’s Hat by Ken Brown

Scarecrow by Cynthia Rylant

Little Scarecrow Boy by Margaret Wise Brown

Patterns and Simple Addition

I use fall centers from The Mailbox for extending patterns and simple addition.

Math manipulatives can be found right outside your door!  Use acorns for simple adding and subtracting.

Roll and Cover activities are also fun when they are fall themed.

Not much of an art teacher?  Give the kids a bunch of materials and see what kind of scarecrow they can create!

It’s no secret that I love to use cooking as part of our thematic units.  These haystacks were easy and delicious!
