One of my team partners had the idea of using some of the items the children have been collecting to have a “fall fair” (thanks Melissa!) Based on what the children brought in, some of the categories were, biggest leaf, smallest leaf, longest piece of grass, and bumpiest gourd. The children counted bumps, sorted leaves and compared blades of grass. One of the children explained that we needed “that long thing with numbers on it” to measure the grass. Others thought they could use some of the materials we had in the classroom. I thought the children might enjoy awarding “ribbons” to their items, so I copied a clip art ribbon to encourage some writing.
