Falling Leaves Printable {FREE}

It's back to school time and apples, pumpkins, & leaves are every where. Leaves are the perfect resource to use for learning science & math concepts. What is better than nature, right? I wanted to share one of the math activities that we're using with leaves to practice math concepts and handwriting this fall.  I'm sharing it with you as a FREE printable today!Falling Leaves- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
I am a big fan of having one activity that can be used to teach multiple objectives. It’s a big perk, if that activity will grow with my child & I can use it at multiple stages of cognitive development. And if it is seasonally exciting, well then I. Am. Sold. This is one of those activities, and I have it for you today FREE!  Let me share with you all of the ways we use this in our home.DSC_0127
First get the FREE download, print, & laminate (or put into a page protector). We like to use plastic leaves, fabric leaves, and even real leaves from outside that we have identified color and tree from.
Roll. Use foam dice to roll a number in the top 2 boxes. If your child is not counting above 6 yet, you can use a single dice.
Add. Ask your child to count up the dots, or to add them together for a sum. If you’re past addition, try subtraction. Comparisons also work great here (write greater than or less than on the sheet, or “write the number of the dice with more dots”).
Write. Your child could write the sum as a digit or a word, both numbers presented on each dice, or trace the digit or word. We use dry erase markers since they erase well on the laminated material.
Count. Using manipulatives, get your child to count out the number that was presented on the dice.
Fun. Enjoy!!!!DSC_0132
If you think your little one would enjoy learning with this, get your copy here for free!
