This hands-on oak tree life cycle sequencing activity makes learning about fall plant science fun for early grades!

Oak Tree Life Cycle Sequencing Activity

It’s autumn and leaves are falling everywhere we look.

We live in a neighborhood that has a ton of oak trees. Okay, not a literal ton, but you get the idea.

So every fall, there are acorns as far as the eye can see.

Which gave me the idea to create a new life cycle activity: this Oak Tree Life Cycle Sequencing Activity set!

Fun Oak Tree Life Cycle Sequencing Activity for Kids

Oak trees are excellent topics for science with primary grade students. Depending on where you live, you can actually see steps in this process with your class in real life!

Read on to see how to use this hands-on life cycle lesson with students.

Hands On Oak Tree Life Cycle Sequencing Activity for Kids

This plant science resource includes a completed life cycle mat, which you can use to review the steps in the sequence with the class.

Then there’s a blank mat for students to complete with labeled or unlabeled picture sequence circles.

Oak Tree Label the Life Cycle Activity

There’s also a version of the activity mat that includes space for students to label the steps for themselves.

Oak Tree Coloring Life Cycle Activity

And a blackline version is included too!

How to Teach the Oak Tree Life Cycle Sequence

To start discussing this topic with your class, review the completed life cycle and walk the students through each step.

If you can get acorns or oak tree leaves, they’d make great visual aids or sensory objects at centers too.

Oak Tree Life Cycle Activity Mat

Once you review the sequence, you can talk about the names for each stage in the growth process.

This will be very helpful if you plan to use the labeling activity mat.

Oak Tree Life Cycle Cut and Paste Activity

If you have pre-readers or ELL students in your class, swap out the labeled circles for the unlabeled picture circles.

Use the differences in each picture to help them remember the process without worrying about spell or pronouncing each stage.

Acorn Life Cycle Sequencing Activity

My personal favorite way to use this resource is as a reusable center activity.

I prep it once and it can be used over and over again.

But it works well as a one-time cut and paste activity for each student too.

Label the Oak Tree Growth Cycle Activity

Another way to reuse this resource is to laminate the labeling mat. Students can write in the correct stage names with dry erase markers.

Then just wipe it clean to use it again.

These pumpkin same and different worksheets are such a simple way to practice visual discrimination during autumn!

Pumpkin Same or Different Worksheets: Pumpkin Pairs!

I love working on visual discrimination practice with young students.

After all, helping preschoolers and kindergartners learn to recognize objects that are the same and objects that are different is the foundation of literacy.

Recognizing differences in objects helps kids recognize differences in letters and numbers – both of which are necessary to learn how to read and count.

During fall, there are a lot of fun ways to practice this skill. These pumpkin same or different worksheets are another resource to try!

Simple Pumpkin Same and Different Worksheets for Kids

These are simple and, depending on how you want to use them, can even be no-prep. Perfect for last-minute lesson planning!

If you use the blackline version, you can even let the students color in the pumpkins for themselves.

How to Use Same or Different Worksheets with Students

Of course, if you want to use these, you can simply print them and hand them out as an in-class activity.

But there are other ways to use these worksheets as well.

Pumpkin Same and Different Worksheets for Early Learners

You can print them half-sized and add them to busy bags or morning tubs.

Pumpkin Same and Different Worksheets for Math Centers

You can print the worksheets on cardstock and cut the rows apart.

Then punch a hole in the rows and place them on a ring for use at centers.

This also works well if you want to turn the worksheets into a self-checking activity.

Just include the answer key for students to check their work.

Pumpkin Themed Visual Discrimination Practice

Early elementary grades are some of the most critical times for developing language arts skills.

Use the noun writing worksheets for reinforcement after the hands-on activity.

This spring counting to ten math center is excellent for kindergartners to use during spring months!

Spring into Counting! Spring Counting to Ten Math Center

Teaching during spring is the best time of all, in my opinion.

Fall has the excitement of back to school, which I love. But springtime teaching is filled with bright and sunny themes, like birds and bees and flowers.

Plus, everyone (students and teachers) knows that the end of the school year is quickly approaching. Everyone just seems to be in a better mood.

During kindergarten, counting to ten is one of the most essential skills for students.

It’s generally taught early in the year, but reinforced later on, particularly if your district uses standardized testing before year’s end.

Which is where this Spring into Counting! Spring Counting to Ten Math Center can help!

Fun Spring Themed Counting to Ten Math Center

This counting to ten math center is filled with fun, hands-on activities for early learners.

It’s aligned to several standards for counting, and it can be used in several ways.

Let’s talk about the average attention span of a primary student, shall we?

If you’re a parent or a teacher, I don’t have to tell you about it.

Free Printable Flashcards: Shape Flashcards

These free printable shape flashcards make it easy to help little ones learn their shapes!
Free Printable Flashcards: Shapes - Look! We're Learning!

I don’t know what it is about flashcards, but my kids absolutely love them.

They’ll collect them, lay them out on the table, pass them around, look at them, and toss them in the air for hours.

Not sure the tossing actually counts as learning, but it’s…something.

Since shapes are one of the primary concepts to teach early learners, I thought a set of free printable flashcards shape cards would be awesome to share with all of you!

Colorful Printable Shape Flashcards for Kids

How Do I Print The Printable Shape Flashcards?

To use these free printable flashcards shape cards, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)

Printable Shape Flashcards for Kindergartners

The set includes 16 flashcards for the following shapes:

  • Square
  • Circle
  • Triangle
  • Rectangle
  • Star
  • Heart
  • Diamond
  • Oval

One set of eight flashcards includes both the shape names and pictures. The second set features only the shapes.

Shape Identification Flashcards for Preschoolers

A line art version is included if you need to save on ink! (And who doesn’t?)

When printing, you can decide how many sets you want at the moment.

Print the color set with names if you’re just starting to cover shapes for the first time.

You might want to come back and print the other sets for review afterward.

How Can I Use Shape Flashcards for Learning?

There are a few ways you can use these flashcards with early learners.

For toddlers, you can laminate them (trust me on this) and put them on an O ring.

They make a great addition to a busy bag!

Printable Shape Flashcards for Early Learners

For preschoolers, you can start talking about the shapes and their names.

Use the cards without names to help them review each shape.

You can also talk about the differences in color. Ask questions such as “Which shape is red?” or “Which shape is yellow?”

Printable Shape Identification Flashcards

Or you can print the line art version and let the kids color the shapes!

For kindergartners, take the activity a little further by talking about the sides each shape has.

They’ll notice right away that the circle and oval are the exceptions – having no sides at all.

You might also place the cards on a ring and let students walk around the classroom, the outdoors, or even their home to spot similar shapes around them!
