Are you following Fun-A-Day’s Fall Pinterest board?
I have to admit, I love using clip art and fonts to create items for my classroom. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s something I enjoy.
For our October calendar, my students requested fall leaves and acorns, and I was happy to oblige. I thought I’d share my fall calendar numbers with you wonderful readers today. They’re great for a variety of math activities beyond the calendar too.
Be sure to get your free printable version of the number cards at the bottom of this post.

How to Prep the Calendar Numbers
Download and print out the fall calendar numbers (you can get your free copy at the bottom of this post). Cut them out – I cut them out in square shapes, but you can also cut them out with curved edges.
Once they’re cut out, I’d suggest laminating them. They last soooooo much longer if they’ve been laminated. We have a laminator at school, but I chose to use a home laminator because the laminator sheets are thicker. Cut everything out!
How to Use the Fall Calendar Numbers
Right now, we’re using these numbers as part of our calendar. I created a simple ABB pattern with the acorns and leaves.
During circle time, the kiddos and I count the numbers in English and Spanish.
Then we go back and “read” the pattern and predict what’s next.
This class loves to “play school” during centers and choice time – they set up the calendar and run through our circle time routine.
They also bring out all of the calendar numbers and try to get them in the correct order.
These number cards are great for all kinds of early math activities, beyond calendar time. Here are a few more ideas:
- Kids can put the numbers in order from 1 to 31.
- Children can match the acorn numbers to the appropriate leaf numbers.
- Bring out some math manipulatives. Help the children place the correct amount of manipulatives under each number. You can’t go wrong with acrylic leaves and acorns (the kids just love them!).
Do you use calendar numbers at home or school? Would your kiddos enjoy these leaf and acorn numbers? Let me know what you think!
