These candy corn activities have certainly been a hit for fall-themed centers! They are perfect for our kindergarten and first grade kiddos just learning the concept of rhyme and sound-symbol correspondence. For sure you’ll want to differentiate this activity by choosing how many and which candy corns to use within your centers. For the alphabet activity, simply place the candy corn pieces on the table and have your students match the upper- and lowercase letters to the beginning sound of the word.
When you download the Candy Corn Rhyme activity you will receive 24 candy corn rhyme pieces. Students match the rhyming pictures. A few of my teacher friends shared that they added a self-checking feature by placing three of the same stickers on the back of each rhyming candy corn. Brilliant!
There are also 24 candy corn matches contained within the Candy Corn Vocabulary activity. For this activity, students match the pictures that “go together”. You can encourage expressive language by having your kiddos explain why they grouped these items. This activity is particularly helpful with our ELL and language delayed students.
Enjoy and happy fall!
