It is usually late October or early November when the leaves begin to fall where we live. Since we start our fall-themed activities before that, I rely on fake leaves from the craft stores to use in our classroom centers. Using fake leaves for a number order math activity is a fun way to reinforce number sense.

Fall Leaves Number Order For Math Stations
This fall leaves number order math activity is an easy independent station that will keep your kindergarten students engaged. I like to read the book Fletcher and the Falling Leaves before we do this activity. If you are not familiar with this book, you can read more about it here.
First, you will need to gather fake leaves. I get mine at a local craft store, but you can also find leaves on Amazon.
Next, you will need to use a sharpie to write numbers on your leaves from 1-10 or 1-20, depending on where your students are with learning number order.
Once you have your leaves labeled, put them in a container. Students take the leaves from the container and put them in the correct order.
Finally, students write their numbers on a recording sheet. I have made two options for a recording sheet, one includes numbers for students to trace. The second option is blank, students will need to write the numbers on their own.
