#1: Candy Corn Comparing
I rarely use food in class, but there are times when a small ration of candy corn seems like a good way to amp up a lesson. Here, students were using candy corn as greater than/less than symbols. I also gave students buttons with equal signs written on them. I got this idea from a post by Amy Lemons. You can grab the freebie sheet shown here.
#2: Take a Closer Look at a Tree
I like to teach my tree unit in the fall. It works perfectly, because we can spend time learning about tree life cycles and why leaves change color. Apple activities fit nicely, as well. Fall is a perfect time to get your class outside to observe some trees. You can grab this FREE observation recording sheet by clicking here.

#4: Scarecrow Book Characters
That's me when I was younger and less gray! I'm holding the Junie B. Jones scarecrow that my students and I created. The classes in our school all created scarecrows and wrote character descriptions to accompany them.
#5: Pumpkin Book Characters
You've probably seen this idea on TPT or Pinterest. This is a class pumpkin we made years ago. Each class in our school created a pumpkin book character to display in the hall. You could also assign book character projects to students to do at home. Need inspiration? Check out my Fall Teaching Ideas Pinterest board for other storybook pumpkin ideas.
