Thursday Therapy: Leaf Week

Yep, it's Thursday Therapy on Saturday. Long week. This week was Apples Week. We read The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall, tasted red, green and yellow apples with cinnamon, brown sugar and caramel, played a fruits and vegetables game, and worked on requesting tissue paper squares to glue into an apple shape.

The theme for the week of Sept. 30 is Leaf Week. We don't get many of the beautiful fall colors on our trees here in Central Texas, but that doesn't stop me from loving all the colors! Here's a peek at activities:
The book my primary students and FA and LS students will be working from is Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert. I'm using two games I've had for - e - ver from Linguisystems' Games to Go - Rake 'Em Up and Locate the Leaves. These units prove that lamination is worth the effort because they are going strong after 20 years! These groups will probably be requesting and gluing tissue paper squares onto a tree shape, too.

Elementary students will be doing Autumn Write & Say the Room, Rake 'Em Up, and leaf jokes from Fall Funnies.

What are your plans for the upcoming week?
