It's Fall Ya'll! Taking a nice walk in the evening with the cool crisp air is one of my favorite things to do. I love seeing the beautiful color on the trees and the nature that has fallen on the ground. Recently my friend, Laura, from Alaska shared a post about creating Acorn People and it intrigued me. What if we used those acorns to tell stories? So this weekend, I am collecting as many acorns, caps, pinecones, and sticks as I can find to create my own National Park Stories. I will use these natural resources to design little vignettes for each National Park. I will photograph it and then share it with students so they can write stories about it.
You can do this too! Think about having your students collect the resources and create their family. They can choose their favorite scene from a book and retell the story with acorns. They can recreate events from history using what they find on the ground. How about reimagining Fairy Tales with acorn people?

We all need a little good news because things have been quite nutty lately.
Well- I have to go....nature is calling. (Wait! Not exactly what I meant!)
