It's autumn! That means it's time to learn! Here are some books that will bring autumn into the classroom:
Can you tell I love Gail Gibbons? I think she really captures the level I teach, combining interesting information along with the second graders reading level.
The Tree for all Seasons goes along with our science curriculum. We have a "Class Tree" which we observe, record, sketch, and follow through the seasons.
I was able to convince my class to choose the maple tree right outside our class window. We went outside to sketch it the other day, but it sure is convenient in the dead of these New England winters to be able to sketch it from inside the classroom!
Here are a few You Tube videos to get fall started:
This is by Harry Kindergarten Music. It's a little young for my second graders but I love the "riddle" verses. I might just have them make up their own riddles after listening!
As much as I hate to see summer end, I always look forward to Autumn in New England! I hope you enjoy it!
