This is a good time of the year to begin talking about deciduous and evergreen trees. With the colors of fall beginning to fade and the leaves falling off the trees, the evergreen trees stand out. A review on the parts of a tree and why leaves change color can start off the lessons leading up to those trees that are still green.
Ella Jenkins has a really beautiful song about trees. I asked my husband to make me a card set that we use during circle time while we sing about the trees in her song. The song is called, Many Pretty Trees. Lessons on evergreen trees can be found in Week 15 – Day 5 and Week 17 – Day 3 of the curriculum pages.
Here are some pictures of children working in the classroom.
