Celebrating Fall

Fall can be so much fun!  There are so many ways to celebrate this season with your class.  I LOVE taking my class apple picking this time of year (and picking up fresh apple butter, and cider while I'm there).

Before we go apple picking, we do so many things related to apples in the classroom.  We study how apples grow, we incorporate apples into our math lessons, and we read and learn about Johnny Appleseed.  Students really enjoy learning about the real John Chapman, and how he helped create the many apple orchards our country has today.  These are some of the cute pop up books my students created as part of our Johnny Appleseed lesson!

Taking my class apple picking after studying all things apple is the best.  Students get to enjoy nature, and bring apples home which they can eat throughout the season.  It is a great first field trip of the school year.

Students are often able to pick out a pumpkin as well.

Whatever activities you decide to do with your class this fall, have fun and enjoy the season!
