Are you looking for fun, engaging September activities for your elementary students? These ready to go resources will get you in the fall spirit AND help you cover all those September holidays! Here is a roundup of my favorite activities to use throughout the month.
Back to School Resources
Depending on what part of the country you are in, you could be having your first days of school in September. Resources like these fun back to school packets include getting to know you activities, working as a group activities, and academic pages to see what your students already know. Little to no-prep pages make these back to school pages teacher friendly for those super busy first days.
If you have already been in school for several weeks by the time September rolls around (like me!), then you might be gearing up for Open House/ Meet the Teacher Night. The template is made for both PowerPoint and Google Slides. Simply type in your information and share in person or virtually through PowerPoint, Google Slides, email, or another platform. Over 40 title templates are included as well as multiple versions of many of them for easy customization. Many of the pages would be great to add in to a Welcome presentation to your students during the first week of school.
Fall Math & Reading Worksheets
Print and go resources are my favorite, so having fall math and reading worksheets ready to use throughout the month are a must! This resource includes 50+ standards-based math and ELA skill pages with a September theme. Use these whole group, for small group skill practice, in learning centers, as morning work, for your early finishers, or with a substitute.
Worksheets cover Labor Day, Constitution Day, Johnny Appleseed, John Chapman, apples, fall, football, back to school, and Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Constitution Day for Elementary Students
Constitution Day is September 17th. This makes September a great time to study the founding of the U.S. and government. These Constitution Day activities for elementary students are print and go ready. Which means social studies planning just got a lot easier!
Other Favorite Fall Classroom Units
September is a great time to start bringing in some fall fun into your classroom. Add some apple study into your science and social studies instruction. Want to step up student engagement? This football theme day while take learning fun to a whole new level!
