This week was pretty exhausting, but very worthwhile.
For my class this week, we borrowed an activity from the website Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning.
After reading the book Fall Leaves Fall, we had a discussion of what falls to the ground during the Fall months.
We provided the students with nuts, acorns, sticks, and pine cones. We threw in some sea shells for fun and for sensory input.
We were nervous about the glue gun, but used one that said "low temp." Only one student was afraid ("No glue! No glue!) and no one even came close to getting burned!
Here are some pictures that will hopefully inspire others as well!
