As the leaves turn vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, and the air becomes crisp, teachers are presented with an opportunity to infuse the spirit of autumn into their classrooms. In this blog post, we’ll explore engaging ways to bring the magic of fall into your classroom – through adapted fall books and a creative pumpkin activity!
Using Adapted Fall Books
Fun Pumpkin Activity!
I saw this activity on Instagram and Pinterest and just had to recreate it! While creating individual pumpkins out of carboard may not be feasible time wise, you could make a large one for the whole classroom to work on! The materials you will need is a pumpkin cut out shape, clear sticky contact paper or packaging tape (for smaller, individual pumpkins), and some fall leaves! Have your students/child collect some of their favorite fall leaves and foliage and stick them to the sticky background. If you have students that love to take projects apart afterwards, feel free to add clear packaging tape or another sheet of contact paper over top! Hang in the window of your classroom or home for a fun fall stain glass art! Happy Fall!
