Hi I’m Jackie from England. I love your website! Here is an idea I am using at our Friendship group. We are having an Autumn poetry day and I am taking in a basket of autumn objects and words so each of our lovely group can choose an item or word... make up a 5 word sentence about it then recite their sentence punctuated after every third sentence with “Thank you for the Autumn” to create a group poem.
eg autumn days, summer has gone
Frosty mornings, mist lingers low
Wind gusting, leaves taking flight
Thank you for the Autumn!
It’s very strange to think our Autumn is at opposite times to yours in Australia!

Thanks so much for your feedback Jackie! Yes it is SO strange that our seasons are opposite. Hard to imagine chilly weather when it is so hot here and vice versa. Love your poem activity, thanks for sharing!

I love this idea. I have also done a similiar activity where we collect autumn leaves or fresh ones paint the leaves and print with them by paining on the leaave and pressing on paper using autumn colours. Also we paint leaf outlines and made a collage of painted and printed leaves.
