Put some spice in your pumpkin presentations by perusing through this issue. Locate a special pumpkin unit study that can be easily adapted for either a Montessori school or home based classroom. If you are currently creating your own fall themed classified reading activities, check out the pumpkin based investigation link. Jot down the types of activities you wish to use for your classified reading presentations. With your list in hand, you can quickly and easily make an interesting pumpkin classified reading card activity that your students are sure to appreciate.
Help children experience the majestic beauty and meaning of this upcoming season. Participating in hands-on exercises involving autumn leaves, analyzing and creating fall themed poems, and investigating and using Thanksgiving recipes from the past, helps students truly experience just some of what autumn has to offer.
This 1999 issue http://amonco.org/fall99.html also contains lesson planning for several upcoming holidays including Christmas and Hanukkah. All dead links have been removed and new ones with fresh autumn themed material have been added.
Many of the older AMC issues are in the process of receiving a facelift, so stay tuned for more fall and winter based resources in the weeks to come!! 🙂
