Welcome, Fall!

Cheers! Happy Fall!
One of my favorite things about teaching is that learning comes in all kinds of places, opportunities, shapes, sizes, and times.

Today, as a welcome to fall, learning came in the shape of a cup as my kids each tried apple cider for the very first time! Sure, there were lots of things we could have included, and turned the experience into a full-fledged lesson, but not this time. They simply sipped and enjoyed their cider during our read aloud.

(Don't get me wrong--we definitely learned a few facts about cider! For example, did you know it takes an average of 52 apples to make a single gallon of cider! Wow!)

Judging by the smiles on their faces, and excitement while they tried something new, I have a feeling they'll remember more than just the folktale this time around.

We'd love to know how you welcomed fall in 2013! Please comment below!
