October's Book of the Month

  

               

 Book Summary:  It’s a young bear’s first autumn, and the falling leaves surprise him. He tries to put them back on the trees, but it doesn’t work. Eventually, he gets sleepy, and burrows into the fallen leaves to hibernate. When he wakes up, it’s spring and there are suddenly brand-new leaves.

Activities You Can Do at Home With Your Child: 

  • Children can look and listen to the story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5Ow-WJH9QE (only 2 ½ minutes long).
  • Sorting – Have student(s) sort leaves by color, size, or type.
  • Math – Have children glue leaves together to make different shapes. Take it a step further by having the students label and/or write a sentence about their shape.
  • Writing - Take a fall walk around the neighorhood(point out sounds, smells, temperature, etc.). Have students collect leaves and describe when you get home.
  • Science - Make predictions. How long does it take for leaves to get crunchy? Gather leaves into a sealed plastic bag. Observe the leaves every day until they become crunchy. Record daily observations.


We hope you enjoy the book of the month with your child.  Stay tuned, because the book of the month for November is a good one too!
