Welcome Fall to Class!

As fall draws closer, it’s time to think about returning to school and sprucing up our classroom for the new term. You will most likely want to decorate the door first since this is the first thing the kids will see. Take inspiration from the beautiful autumnal colors and make paper leaves, paper flowers, and critters such as squirrels. You can put pictures of the kids on the door, and because Halloween and Thanksgiving are during the season, you can also draw from these themes too.
