One activity we did to help us understand that the seasons are in a pattern was I chose two different students to be in the middle of our circle. They each wore one of these hats:
I made the hats by taping a sun and an earth to a sentence strip. Then the student wearing the earth hat rotated around the sun while the rest of the students chanted "winter, spring, summer, fall" a few times.
We also read this book
then created our Tree for All Seasons book. I got this idea from Mrs. Saylor's blog.
You can print the poems on Mrs. Saylor's blog.
We are continuing the seasons this week. I will post more pictures soon.
