Autumn Acorns {Free Printable}

We have spent a lot of time outside collecting acorns lately, so we thought it was time to put them to good use.  I mean I love them sitting in a tupperware container my treasure chest on the counter, but I thought we could do something else with them that was fun and engaging.  I wanted to share some of our activities with you, and give you a FREE acorn printable with some activity inspiration.
Roll Write Count Autumn Acorns- 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_0126
First get the FREE download, print, & laminate (or put into a page protector). We like to use acorns we have collected, plastic and felt acorns.

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!!!!
