Ah.....the colors of autumn.
Create a seasonal feel of falling leaves right in your classroom! (No need to write names on each hand...it's a community effort and fun to wonder who's hand it is.)
Trace a hand on fall-colored construction paper. Cut out. Punch a hole. Thread through hole. Hang from ceiling.
Children love to act out this poem. Don't be surprised if you hear, "Let's do it again!"
LEAVES ARE FALLING TO THE GROUND (wiggle fingers, sway arms, moving them downwards)
YELLOW, BROWN, AND RED.
SOFTLY FALLING, LIKE THE RAIN, (repeat movement)
(pause...gently taping the top of your head)) OH!
ONE FELL ON MY HEAD!
