October's the month,
When the smallest breeze,
Gives us a shower of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down.
October is red,
And golden, and brown.
The children in my class have been learning this poem throughout the month. They so enjoy our poetry basket and take pride in reciting the words with their friends! In fact, we have been taking turns as circle time reciting the poem in front of our classmates. What a joy it is to hear the voices of children sharing poetry together! :) Here are some photos to share of our poetry basket in use as well as a collection of pictures from this past week. Enjoy!
