Ideas for fall and autumn reading projects, creative writing assignments, and bulletin board displays.
"The Giving Tree," by Shel Silverstein, is a wonderful book to read your students in the fall and it's easy to create a colorful fall bulletin board display with your students' creative writing assignments. You can find lesson plan ideas for the "The Giving Tree" here: www.uniqueteachin...

Pikadilly Charm: Paper Craft
Creating a barn out of your classroom door is a creative idea for a classroom door display. I like how the teacher used hay and flowers with students' photos inside as part of her decorations.

This is a cute turkey project using 3-inch and a 6-inch craft foam balls that are cut in half and painted brown. Use yellow, orange, and brown tail feathers and glue sequins on them. Add wiggly eyes, pipe cleaners for the legs, and orange construction paper for the beak. These turkeys have a flat back, so they could also be added to a Thanksgiving bulletin board display to give it a fun 3 dimensional effect.
Candy Corn on the Cob While reading stories about that first Thanksgiving, kids can make the very food that had a starring role: corn! Cut the corncob shapes out of orange, yellow, and brown craft foam. Glue candy corn all over the fronts. Punch two holes in the top of each ear for a big green ribbon hanger. Make three to hang together on a door or on the back of each dining room chair.
"Candy Corn on the Cob" Cut out corncob shapes out of craft foam or heavy construction paper and paint them orange, yellow, and brown. Glue candy corn on them, punch two holes in the top of each ear and string a green ribbon through them to tie them all together.
"Tree-rific Books" with a large tree with leaves and books in its branches is a great idea for a Fall bulletin board display that will encourage your students to branch out and read during the fall.

"Fall In Love With ______" is a popular title for an autumn bulletin board display. This teacher has added student photos inside the leaves (along the top and right) and her tree and pumpkin patch are very eye-catching.

The “owl collages” created by these 1st Grade students are adorable. They sketched their owl on the paper, tore up brown paper and glued it onto the body, then painted the eyes on an egg carton. For a fall themed bulletin board display and creative writing assignment, I’d add the title and writing topic “This Fall It’s a Hoot To Read!”
