Today I saw a great idea for fall and I want to share it with a few of my own ideas.

Tie in literacy and create a chart with the word fall or autumn, ask them to use their schema to think about what they know. Record their thinking.  Give the children baggies and allow them to collect materials in the school ground, or go on a walk to find things that have to do with the outdoors.  Bring the materials into the classroom and have them sort them out.  Use the items for counting.  Give each child a paper plate to glue some of their items.  Review the chart again to see if they learned anything new.  Tap into their 5 senses too. 

Create a bulletin board display to show their creations and their literacy thinking!
