All around our house the fall decorations have been coming out. The first to arrive were the scarecrows on the front porch. Followed quickly by some fall sunflowers. I have always loved the brightness of the sunflowers and they, along with the scarecrows, were a great inspiration for the scarecrow word building printable that I’ve put together for you.

Back in August, I shared an Apple Basket CVCE Word Building printable with you and you all loved it! Since the beautiful apple fun of September is quickly coming to a close, I wanted to change up the theme a bit and give us all a fun, fall-themed activity to carry us through October.

We’ll also be getting some fun scarecrow books to read.

I’m trying to get Jaida excited about reading still, so hopefully Mr. Scarecrow will be some inspiration for her.

To assemble the Scarecrow Word Building Printable:

Printable the scarecrow board, sunflower letters and your choice of the two word sets (with the words included or without words).

Laminate for durability.

Have the child choose one of the words and then locate the matching letters for the word. For extra practice, have the child spell the word aloud to engage more senses.

I will be buying some small hay bales from a local craft store, spreading the hay into a sensory bin and hiding the sunflowers in the hay for more fun. (I’ll share some pictures after we do it, I just didn’t want to wait until next week to get this fun activity to you.)

Do you love this activity?

Pin it for later!
