Fall in Love with Seasonal Teaching Resources

Fall is officially upon us! And as the crisp autumn air sweeps in, EMC² Learning is excited to embrace the vibrant colors and cozy moments that come with this beautiful season. It’s the perfect time to infuse a touch of fall magic into your classrooms and engage your students in the wonders of the changing world around them.

EMC² Learning is all about celebrating the start of fall while equipping teachers with equally colorful and creative classroom resources to help you rustle up a more student-centered learning experience. This week, we’ve added three new autumn-themed activities to the ever-expanding bounty of more than 600 fully editable resources that are available to Engagement Engineers around the world. So grab a warm cup of apple cider, curl up with a cozy blanket, and let’s dive into the autumn-inspired treasures we have in store for you!

Peer Review Just Got a Lot More Colorful

Cider season is here! And the Autumn’s Bounty Badge Battle is here to help students of any age discover the warmth and joy that comes from learning from one another. Watch your students “fall” in love with peer review as they compete to collect all sorts of colorful tokens on their trip through the falling leaves. This resource is fully editable for any course or content area, and can be a perfect seasonal way to add instant life and excitement to any classroom bumper crop of creativity. So make like a tree and “leaf” those sleepy reviews behind!

Peer Review Just Got a Lot More Colorful

Grab a pumpkin spice latte and zip up your puffer vest — because it’s sweater season, and the Fall Star Station2Station showdown is here! This resource features a cornucopia of self-paced, student-centered activities that can easily be served up for multiple days of fun. Breeze through the basics of student-centered instruction with the leveled difficulty mode and challenge your learners to complete multiple stations in a single class period, or push your students to the ultimate degree of performance by taking on the limitless difficulty mode where all teams get to compete against one another in a battle to create the very best harvest haul in all of the class.

Rustle Up Reading with Squirrels Who Run The World

Feeling squirrelly and looking to rustle up some excitement for your next close reading activity? The Squirrel Army Showdown will transform any classroom into a woodland battleground where rival teams of critters compete to find all sorts of hidden treasures in any text. Because the truth is: getting students excited about reading a text closely can often feel like an assignment straight out of the special ops. But once we scatter some top-secret reward items throughout the pages of our required reading? Any classroom can become a flurry of student-centered enthusiasm.

The activities featured in this blog post are just a handful of the 600+ resources available in the EMC² Learning library. This entire library is available to Engagement Engineers and members of the Creative Corps, and is included with your annual site membership. We hope you’ll consider joining us as an Engagement Engineer to unlock a full year of site access. For complete details including our exclusive limited time offer for annual site membership, click here.
