Falling Leaves! Leaf Identification Flashcards and Matching Activity

Fall is nearly here!

I love summer, but fall is a close runner-up for my favorite time of year.

The leaves change colors, the weather gets cool, plus we get to start baking and knitting!

So I thought I’d share a set of printable leaf identification flashcards!

These are perfect for fall learning, but you can really use them anytime of the year.

They’d also be great for a spring unit, since that’s when plants begin to flower again.

Matching Up Leaf Identification Flashcards

I am woefully ignorant about plant species, so I learned quite a bit by making these.

I hope you and your students enjoy them as well!

Plus, keep reading to see how to get a set of expanded leaf identification activity cards for your class too!

These printable bird identification flashcards are perfect for a fall or spring unit study! Teach kids how to identify the birds they see in the neighborhood!

The air is getting warmer and we’ve started noticing flocks of birds flying in a “V” formation around our town. Even Piglet shouts “All those birds, Mama!” when she sees them.

They’re returning here after the winter. Soon we’ll be hearing them sing in the mornings again!

Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

One of Pooh’s objectives this year is to learn to work with arrays.

When I was in school, we weren’t using arrays. We were memorizing addition and multiplication facts back then.

Now, though, arrays are an important (and helpful) way to understand adding and multiplying.

So I put together a math product: Apple Arrays! – A fun, apple-themed way to have array practice for second grade!

Help kids learn to use arrays when adding with these printable apple addition arrays for second grade!

By the way, be sure to check out our Apple Orchard Playdough Counting Mat for your toddlers and preschoolers!

Need to practice visual discrimination? Don’t miss our Apple Alike! Same or Different Worksheets!

Work on using arrays to add numbers up to five with these printable apple themed addition array practice printables! These are great for math practice in early grades!

Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

To use these printables, you’ll need the following: (Affiliate links are included in this post. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)

Printable Apple Arrays Printables for Kids

This product includes 16 worksheets that include both addition and multiplication for numbers 1-5.

Printable Addition Array Practice for Kids

If your students are still working on addition fluency, the first ten worksheets are all about adding numbers 1-5.

Apple Themed Addition Array Practice for Kids

A full answer key is provided, so the kids can check their work.

This is a great activity for practicing addition facts.

But if your students are ready for a quick introduction to multiplication, the last six worksheets are perfect for showing them the relationship between adding and the times tables!

Apple Math Array Practice for Kids

How to Use Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

I have to admit that when Pooh saw that there were multiplication problems on the sheet, his reaction was “TIMES TABLES????”

It was a dramatic moment, for sure.

But I used the first few pages to introduce him to using arrays with addition.

And then we talked about how addition with arrays is the same as multiplication.

Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

This product focuses just on working with 5’s from 5+0 to 5+5+5, so you can use it to introduce times tables from 5×1 to 5×5.

The first set of pages contains apple arrays and written addition and multiplication problems.

Pooh and I looked at each row and column in the arrays to understand why we write those particular addition and multiplication equations to represent them.

Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

Count out the number of apples in each row to find your first addend.

Then count the number of rows to find the second. Simple!

Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

After he went through and solved the first set of problems, we used the second set of pages.

These pages have the apple arrays and addition/multiplication problems, but kids have to read the array correctly to fill in the addends/multiplicand/multiplier.

Apple Array Practice for Second Grade

Which he did on his own!

He was so excited to grasp how to read arrays and relate them to multiplying that as soon as Jay came in the door, he said “Dad! I learned how to do times today!”

Another one of those homeschooling gifts I’m thrilled to share with them this year.
