Decorative Tip: seasonal napkins
Save unused seasonal napkins from parties and special snacks to use as covers for student-made booklets. Cut student pages slightly smaller than the size of the napkins. Then staple the completed pages between two napkin covers. Not only are these covers durable, but students love the colorful designs!
Classroom Display: gourds
Celebrate the season with this attractive display. Invite each child to sponge-paint a copy of the gourd pattern (see print link) using brown, green, yellow, and orange paint. After the paint is dry, have him cut out his gourd. Then direct him to glue to his gourd a construction paper stem and a photo of his face. Mount the projects to a board with the title "We're Gourd-geous'!"Print
