Fall lends itself to some of our most fun units! I love scarecrows and it's one of my favorite weeks. We use the poem Five Crows for our focus poem and below are some pictures of a couple of fun activities. A teacher friend, Mrs. Estes shared both ideas with me a few years ago. First, I act our the poem by wearing the shirt and hat and crows. I teach the students the poem while I act it out. This year, I put the scarecrow clothes in our storytelling center and let them retell the story all week. They had a blast! We also made a flip book where first we drew a scarecrow then glued on 5 crows. We retold the poem while "scaring" away the crows as we flipped the flaps.
