Call It Fall Y'all!

Did you feel that?
We did.
3.3 seconds of Southern California Fall.
It happened.
Barely, but we're calling it.
The temperature dipped below 90 degrees the other day.
Yes, it was during the daylight...
So, it's official.
We're kicking summer to the curb.
Sunglasses out, scarves in.
 To help us ring in the new season, we're excited to pull out our 
Fall into First Grade
Common Core Math and Literacy Activities for the Season
 We created these activities last year to make our lives easier. 
Truth be told, preparing centers each week takes us forever!
We couldn't do it anymore.
We needed activities at our fingertips.
We chose 15 skills and standards to get us through the season.
 Many of these activities are first trimester benchmarks for our students, so emerging them in daily practice ensures we are covering the skills through our independent work time leading up to report card assessments...Excuse the foul language. We really try to keep this blog clean. ;)

  7. Puyallup, Washington, where I teach, is home to the Western Washington State Fair. The high school football stadium is just blocks away. On clear fall evenings there's a slight chill in the air. I love to sit in the stands and watch the grid iron rivalry. Screams from the roller coaster mingle with the cheers of fans, and the scent of fair burgers drift into the stadium. It's truly a sensory fall paradise!

  8. Lol! I know what you mean about the warm weather - I live in Florida. Having moved here from Ohio, I do miss the cooler temps and the changing leaves. What's not to love about fall? The start of the holiday season, football, pumpkins, favorite season!
