Pinterest Picks for October

Did you know we are halfway through the first trimester?  For some of you, you may even be more than halfway through.  So as we prepare for the chilly months ahead (I live in Massachusetts), I've found some great ideas from Pinterest to get us through the month.  Many thanks to Lisa from Pawsitively Teaching and Marissa from Inspired Owl's Corner for hosting another month of Pinterest Pick 3.

Since I live in New England where leaves change color in the fall, my students are always very interested to learn how that happens.  This is a great science experiment with very few materials needed.

Is this not just darling?  Since we are also leaning about mapping this month, this is perfect!

I found this on Pinterest last night and I love it!  What a great idea, even for reluctant writers.
