Fall into Reading: Fall Themed Books
Fall is a perfect time to get back into a routine at home with practice and encouraging reading outside of school. Since children are back into a routine for school, it can make for an easier transition to incorporate reading at home. There are many ways that this can be done: setup a reading area at home, model reading, or read with your children before bed. You can even incorporate a fall theme with book choices to get started on an interesting and timely note.
For emerging readers, a great fall themed book is The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger. This story is told from the perspective of a leaf that is holding on during the transition from fall into winter. It can be a great book to discuss the idea of change as well as friendship with your children and how sometimes it is okay to let go and embrace the challenges ahead. As a connecting art project, you could have your child finger paint a yellow leaf and then add it to a brown tree that you build with construction paper. You could then add other leaf friends to the tree as well.
