A fun unit for beginning readers that combines colour words and an autumn vocabulary. Take a walk around your schoolyard, neighbourhood, or a nearby park. Watch for birds, squirrels, butterflies and insects. Observe weeds, wildflowers and trees. Focus on the changes that are occurring – cooler weather, changing colours, caterpillars turning into butterflies, etc. If possible, collect leaves, seeds, insects, etc., for further examination in the classroom. You can than have the students use the information they collected throughout this unit either during the poetry or brainstorming section, etc. Activities that are included in this resource are: brainstorming, creative language, reading, phonics, art, sequencing, visual discrimination, mathematics, and printing.
