Celebrations!


Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build. is starting a new movement, Celebration Link-Up. On each Saturday share your celebration(s) from the week, link it to her blog and comment on other celebrations shared.

One of my celebration from the week was seeing joy on my students faces. Sometimes we do the simplest things to find joy and leaf hunting was the ticket on Friday afternoon. We each went and found two leaves for leaf rubbing. Then students got creative with colors and designs. I wish I had taken a picture but instead I will invite you to go find a leaf and do a crayon rubbing yourself. It is bound to make you smile.

  3. Isn't it fun to celebrate the small things in a world that seems to emphasize the big things.

  4. My students have been obsessed by leaves. We really need to have our classes meet. We have been observing them as scientists. They would love to see how you have been working with them creatively.

  5. Picking colorful leaves or putting an acorn in a pocket transports me back to childhood. So little is needed for joy.
    On another note: Congratulations on becoming a TWT co-author!

  7. On our way home this afternoon we just took a detour to see more of the fall leaves changing colors on the trees in our neighborhood. Your post made me think back to those moments! I am glad that you helped your students savor the season!

  10. Betsy, I wish I'd read your post earlier in the day. We took a walk to Taughannoch Falls today. I saw several children carrying leaves and wished I'd grabbed one to make a rubbing! Next Saturday for sure!
