Fall Poetry

I love FALL activities!!! Here is one we did with our first graders! The pictures turned out sooooo sweet. 

THIS IS THE HALLWAY DISPLAY.

 So funny... each students' personality came out for this project!!

 Each student had to re-write the poem of the month. It was called Fall Leaves. I have included a close up of the poem and the book I used to get the idea.
We took pictures of each student with a leaf on their head.
After they wrote their poem they got leaves that the poem talked about.....1 orange, 2 brown, 3 yellow, 3 green, 2 red. They placed the leaves all over the matted poem.

We studied this poem in morning meeting. We used math, sight words, rhyming, patterns and fluency!! All with one poem!!! They love it and I can hear them saying it to themselves all the time!!!Crystal Springs Book
SO go get this book!!! Each poem is loaded with great ideas and even ones that you can add your own special touches to ( this idea was my own)!!!
