Fall - Outside and In


Photos from our walk the other weekend.

Gorgeous lighting...

Gorgeous colors...

Along the Mississippi.

And inside:

The other day one of my kindergarten students came in holding something behind his back. He pulled this leaf art out:

...and said "This is for you for being the best teacher." Aw! I hung it in the window of our classroom.

And a fall project:

All four kindergarten classes created a collage mural based on The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, only we called it The Windy Day to match the season.

Each class made leaves in a different way. I had my students make handprint leaves, which we cut out and added to the mural:

Looks a little busy in the photo, but it's super cute. The kids love seeing all their work up in the hall!

And just yesterday, I got another fall gift from one of my kiddos:

An apple for her teacher! So sweet.


  1. The mural is wonderful. The Snowy Day was one of my favorite books. What a clever way to adapt it.

  2. There is nothing quite like a clear path full of autumn leaves! Love that picture.
    Oh, and how lucky to get apples! (I wish they'd still do that in secondary!)


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and to let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
