Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat!  

It's hard to believe FALL is here!  I always like to be sure that my young learners are noticing the changes that occur each season.  I used to do this with my own daughters (who are now both teachers), and to this day, when seasons change, they tell me they remember things we talked about.  They, in turn, engage their students in these same observations.  As we walk inside after recess, I always ask my students to stop a minute beside a fenced in pond at our school.  We take a few minutes to look for changes in trees, animals, plants, the water, etc.  At this time of year, students notice the color changes of the leaves, the grass turning brown, geese flying south, wooly bear caterpillars, acorns on the ground, squirrels gathering nuts, etc. Sometimes we are lucky enough to catch a frog sitting on a log!  These observations can be recorded in a science journal about the seasons.   I have a set of emergent readers for Fall. There are 4 versions of each reader.  There is also a version on which students can record their own observations about Fall and illustrate.  These observations can also be starting points for science lessons as well.

Here are 3 different Fall Emergent Readers - 4 Versions of Each One.  There are also versions for students to record their own observations about Fall and illustrate them.
