Scarecrow Activities

We had so much fun learning about scarecrows, but first I wanted to share a picture of how big our pumpkin plants have grown!  The kids were very excited to finally take them home.
We listened to the story, 'The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything.'
We used the pocket chart to help us with sequencing the events in order.  The kids really enjoyed listening to this story!
We really enjoyed reading this emergent reader that Ms. Kelly Findsen shared in here TpT store.  Click on the image to go directly to her TpT store to download the book.
The kids also enjoyed playing 'Roll n Color Scarecrow.'  Thanks to Tammy from Live, Love, Laugh Everyday in Kindergarten who made it!  Click on the image to go directly to her TpT store and download the game.
We read a variety of books about scarecrows and made a circle map.
Then we used the circle map to help us write a complete sentence.  My kindergarteners did such a great job with trying to write on their own.  I'll try to take a picture of their journals so that you can see how well they did!
We also made a tree map and they had such wonderful ideas that we were having a hard time fitting in everything that they wanted to share.
I made a scarecrow template and so far they turned out really cute!  We made our scarecrows and then wrote about our scarecrows in the writing center.
Tomorrow we will be making pumpkin pie!  The kids can't wait to help write the steps and help bake a pie in our classroom!:)
