I just LOVE activities that contain a self-checking feature. These types of activities are ideal for independent centers! We created these adorable scarecrow rhyme, alphabet and CVC activities just for fall. You can easily differentiate these activities by choosing which and how many scarecrows to use.
Here’s how the self-checking feature works for the alphabet activity. Simply place the desired scarecrows and the matches on the table and have the students make the match. They then turn over the card and if the upper- and lowercase letters match their responses are correct. Super simple!
Here’s a different twist on the activity. With this activity students place the pictures with the beginning sound on the scarecrow template. Once the pictures are in place they just turn the cards over and if the letters match their answers are correct!
For our kiddos who have pretty good handle on letters and sounds, you may wish to move them to working with CVC words. When you download this activity you will receive 39 CVC word matches. Again, you’ll want to differentiate this activity by limiting the number of matches during a session.
The Scarecrow Rhyme activity also contains a self-checking feature. After all the matches are made, students turn the cards over and the pictures will match.
Enjoy your fall season!
