To play the students put three flapjacks in the pan with the question side up. When it is their turn they must read the question aloud and say their answer aloud. Then they use the spatula to flip it over. If they are correct they get to put the flapjack on their plates. The winner is the one with the most flapjacks.

This was done with 3rd graders although it can be adjusted for any grade level. The student drew a face on the acorn and colored it in. Each acorn opened like a book and on the inside the students wrote about the reasons that they like fall. Then I made a tree using brown bulletin board paper that I crumpled and twisted to look like a tree trunk and branches.
After nine years of teaching and nine years of searching for ideas to use in the classroom I have realized that I have many to offer others as well. So.....here we go....a spot for sharing. Since, just like we teach our students....sharing is caring! I hope you find many ideas that you like and that you can use!
