    harvest - ideas for next year! ha ha

    With my 4-5's we talk about harvest. We make corn one day by glueing tissue paper (from the end of a pencil if children are capable of holding it and dipping it in glue) onto a corncob shape. These are posted on a bulletin board to make a corn field.
    The following day we talk about how crows try to eat the corn. We cut out a crow shape, teacher puts a slit in it, and children fold paper in accordian folds and slip it through the slit for wings. White reinforcements on either side make great eyes. These are also displayed.
    Day three finds us needing help to save our corn from the crows, so we make scarecrows and post those as well.
    I hope you have a 3 day week!
    If you need to fill 5 days. . . . . .
    Do a harvest wreath. Cut the center out of a paper plate. Children cut out and glue different vegetables to the plate. Add a bow of some kind.
