I ♥ Fall.

The other day, on the first day of Fall, I read my kindergarteners a story about Fall to start off the day. But before beginning the book, I asked them if they knew what 'Fall' was. Almost all of my students raised their hands, and came up with following answers:

  • It means... ummm... the sky is blue?

  • Fall is when we wear our jackets because it's cold.

  • It's when the leaves change colors.

  • Halloween!

  • It's when I go to the pumpkin patch.

  • Apple Hill is in the Fall.

  • {And then of course, my genius child had to shout out} NO MRS. GRAY, Fall is Autumn, it's the season that comes after Summer!

Besides Mr. SmartyPants, I loved their answers. It's so refreshing to see the world from a child's perspective, and I was reminded how badly I want to go to Apple Hill. Maybe I can talk Jordan into going this weekend!

P.S. This is my 100th post! Thought that was pretty exciting.


  1. awe little cuties. i'm excited about all those things too. i just wish the weather would hurry up and start getting cold.

  2. I love Apple Hill. Every year my parents and I went there the day after Thanksgiving to cut down our Christmas tree. Of course we would load up on pie and other goodies while there.

  3. Iris- Seriously, I hate this weather! It makes me sad.

    Brandi- I really want to cut down my own tree this year, that sounds like so much fun!
