It's my favorite time of the year! The leaves are changing colors, the weather is cooler and it's finally boots and sweaters weather! It's also the time of the year that I take a million trees and leaves pictures. If you follow me on instagram, you've seen the proof!
Now that we have gotten past my current obsession, I'm thankful for my amazing pals over at the Primary Pack for inviting me to participate in this adorable Fall Favorites Blog Hop! Not only am I meeting many other wonderful teacher blogger but I get to share my newest product with you!
I love using acrostic poems during this time of the year because there are so many things that can be described. My kids always are able to quickly create these poems from their schema. It's a no hassle fun way to introduce a simple form of poetry.
We begin our lesson by creating one together for the word Fall. I had students turn and talk with a partner to come up with ideas and be successful. We voted on the best sentences that fit our "theme".
After our practice together, I sent them off with the word Pumpkin with a future art project in mind (more on that later!). They were hard at work creating meaningful and descriptive sentences about Autumn time.
I was there with post-its to help them with their editing, including spelling and making sense of the words. Notice the word Karve up there, creative but had them think of another K word to begin with!
A finished poem ready to be mounted with our soon to appear art project! We started this mystery project today so come around for the finish pieces next week!
As a thank you for hopping along, I've got a freebie poem for you! Download it by clicking above. Also for this weekend only my entire Laugh Eat Learn store is on sale to celebrate fall!
Last but not least hop along to my friend Katie at Simply Creative in KY for her fall favorite! :) Have a fabulous weekend!
