Fall Math and Literacy Packet (1st Grade)

I am SO excited about our NEW Fall Math and Literacy Packet for 1st Grade!  I have been working like crazy to get this packet finished and I am happy that is is finally DONE!  Just like our Kindergarten packet, this 1st Grade version is filled to the brim with fun, hands-on resources!  There is NO FLUFF in this packet!   Every page has been carefully aligned to meet the standards for 1st Grade and I must say that this is my favorite pack yet!

A few of these printable "in action"...
I had a very happy little girl when I broke out our Fall Math and Literacy packet the other day!  What I LOVE best about these printables is that they are right on target for 1st grade and they are FUN!

We played the Roll and Color the Turkey and used 3 dice for some simple addition practice.   This was a hit!  I can't even tell you how many times we rolled the dice and added the 3 numbers.  I think she thought we were playing a game all morning...I guess we were :)  I loved seeing her brain working at adding 3 numbers.  She would say, "5 + 5 = 10 and four more is 14!"  Then she would color that number on the turkey.
It's all about the dice and the crayons!  Math doesn't get any better than that!
We also worked on some Fall Measurement with our "leaf ruler"...
Of course we had to use the ruler to measure crayons, boxes, pencils and a ton of other things!  We learned about estimating as well!  So fun!  We really took a simple printable to the next level!
We worked on Ordinal Numbers...
We even had a fun Fall Party Invitation to practice reading, fluency and writing!  This simple printable also worked with writing the date, looking at a calendar to determine the 3rd Saturday in November, time and elapsed time.  I encouraged perfect penmanship since it was an "important" party invitation and we also brainstormed different fall foods.  This was a great opportunity to touch on so many different areas of 1st Grade standards!
Shape UP!  This was a bit a mental challenge for us so we will be coming back to this printable again.  I think I will also take out some shape manipulatives to get some extra practice.  Geometry in its earliest form!

We worked on writing some fantastic sentences on our Fall Sentences paper.  We incorporated all there types of sentences and talked the difference between a boring sentence and a GREAT sentence!  We talked about using details and incorporating more descriptive words.   

These are just a few of the fun resources found in our Fall Math and Literacy Packet for 1st Grade!
