Teaching Tips for Months of the Year and Seasons

Try these teaching tips for adding activities to the Year and Seasons unit.

  1. If you have a bulletin board with a mascot, change its clothing to look seasonal. Example: towel, sunglasses, scarf, beanie, gloves, etc. Clifford is on our bulletin board all year, so he gets to dress up on many occasions.
  2. Dramatize Maurice Sendak's book, Chicken Soup with Rice. Have students dress seasonally and act out the story. Invite parents and serve Chicken Soup With Rice!
  3. Make a birthday graph.
  4. Display favorite birthday photographs.
  5. Use Greg and Steve's song "Months of the Year" from the CD We All Live Together Vol. 2
