FALLing into Tried it Tuesday!



What have you tried at home or school?





Welcome back to Tried It Tuesday!  We are linking up again with the amazing Fourth Grade Flipper's Tried It Tuesday to share a few ideas of what works in our classroom!


This Tuesday we are FALLing into Autumn!


First we read a fun fall story"We're Going on a Leaf Hunt" by Steve Metzger.  It's similar to "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" except the children stop and gather things.  The words are very engaging and this is a great book to "fall into."





Of course, we had to go on an actual leaf hunt!  Since where we live there aren't many colorful leaves to choose from so we decided to make some beautiful colored leaves using some from our very own leaf collection!  We discussed our leaves and even came up with a cute poem about a leaf that was blown down!  We made this into a great autumn craft!
