Happy Fall Y'all!
Fall is one of my favorite units to teach and I always start my unit off with painting fall leaves! I love to hang them from the ceiling in my classroom...it looks like leaves are falling all around us! I have tons of fall books but this year we read "The Leaves on the Trees" before painting.
We also practiced putting fall sentences together today! They had so much fun being bossy and telling the kids holding the words to move around. This activity will be included in my Fall Unit (coming soon). I originally made it as a pocket chart activity but I don't have any free pocket charts to use so I used my kids instead!
"Tasty Fire Trucks"
We celebrated the end of our Community Unit last Friday by making "Tasty Fire Trucks". This is not one of my original ideas...I found it in a book. It was so long ago that I honestly couldn't even tell you which one it was. (If you know, please leave a comment so I can give the publishers credit.)
Step 1: Spread the icing onto the graham cracker. If you get icing on your fingers you must LICK IT OFF. My kids always look at me like I'm crazy because they expect me to say wipe your fingers on your napkin.
Step 2: Add the wheels.
Step 3: Add Chex cereal window to truck.
Step 4: Build a ladder using pretzels.
Step 5: Add gum drop for serene.
Step 6: Let Mrs. Lanier take your picture
Step 7: EAT and ENJOY!
Class yelling "Tasty Fire Trucks"! Did I mention that I did this activity at the end of the day? Sugar them up and send them home is my motto! We had so much fun doing this activity!
Last Note: I used a font color other than purple! GO ME! I was also listening to the new Dave Matthews Band album while creating this post so if it makes absolutely no sense it's because I was distracted.
