Fall 2023

Autumn is my favorite time of year. Autumn is a time of transition, beauty, and warmth, both in the changing scenery and the way it warms our hearts. The temperature moves from summer heat to crisp, cool days.  It’s a reminder that change can be breathtakingly beautiful, and there’s a lot to be thankful for in every season of life.

Autumn also provides a rich backdrop for teaching. The season incorporates the changing seasons into lessons, using the vibrant colors and natural phenomena as a source of inspiration. It’s a wonderful way to make learning come alive. Furthermore, the approach of the holiday season during autumn brings opportunities for cultural exploration and reflection.

K12IRC highlights the following Fall Activities and Lessons:

  • Fire Prevention Week
  • Digital Citizenship Week
  • Hispanic Heritage Month
  • Red Ribbon Week

 Don’t forget the section on Library & Media where the following resources are available:

  • Kids Safe Search Engines
  • Online Dictionaries
  • Monthly Activity Calendars
  • Maps & Globes

In summary, autumn is a cherished season for educators. It’s a time of transformation, learning, and growth. Just as the leaves change and fall, we see our students evolve, gaining new knowledge and experiences that will shape their futures. The autumn season is a reminder of the endless possibilities that lie ahead in the world of education.

Enjoy the autumn season!
