This post has information about Skillful Scarecrow Activities and freebie Roll-a-Scarecrow printable page.  SKILLFUL SCARECROW does not have a holiday theme, only a fall theme. I made it with just fall clip art so it could be used anytime in the fall. Writing, math, and reading centers, and a printable game are all included. 78 pages of fall fun! Although I’m sad to see the leaves turning color already, the colors will be beautiful and many nice weather days are still ahead.

The PDF with Easel activities is on Teachers Pay Teachers. 


Here is a picture of pages in the SK center and optional game. Recording pages are included.

roll-a-scare-crow-cover Roll-a-Scarecrow has NO PREP graphing and printable work with 3 addends. To reuse the graphing page, just place them in a plastic sleeve and provide dry markers for the children.  Activities printed in color as so appealing, but the cost for classroom sets would be prohibitive.
