Wordless Wednesday - Fall Fun!

This morning, I'm linking up with Miss DeCarbo at Sugar and Spice for one of my favorite linky parties --- Wordless Wednesday! is officially FALL! Not so much here in Ft. Lauderdale, but I can dream!
In first grade, we went crazy for pumpkins. Here you can see our "Harvesting New Skills" bulletin board. I'm so sad I couldn't find a full length picture with clear writing, but this will do. Each pumpkin is a graphic organizer that focused on 1 of 4 skills: Story Elements, BME, Author's Purpose, or Main Idea. The pictures show us enjoying Pumpkin Day! This is my all-time favorite unit to do in the fall.
Today's Question: What is your favorite fall activity, craftivity, or unit?

Be sure to link back up with Christina to enjoy other pictures!


  1. I love the look and idea of that display - thanks for sharing!

  2. Great display! The vines are perfect. I love all things pumpkin. I start the year teaching about trees and forests, and we always head outside to measure trunk circumference, etc. My colleague and I also have the students research turkeys. Then we write expository pieces. We do our final copies on turkey-shaped stationary.

    1. I also LOVE pumpkins! I live in South Florida, so I don't get enough pumpkins for my liking. lol Those sound like great ideas for units! Have fun!

  3. Your bulletin board looks great!!! We do an activity with The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree where the kids paint 4 trees to look like the tree in each season. Another one of my favorites is we use orange plates and have the kids use foam shapes to make a jack-o-lantern face and then add a brown stem. Then we have them graph the shapes they used to make their jack-o-lantern face. Always turns out so cute!!!


    1. Thank you! I love that idea. Adding the graphing is such a powerful math connection!
