  4. Lastly, get yourself in the fall groove with fall recipes & music

This school newsletter template celebrates autumn as only a teacher can.

We've shared resources for teaching about the autumnal equinox, science activities related to fall food, gardening, weather & autumn leaves, prompts for poetry, and some fun stuff for grownups. Up first, we’ve got some fun facts about the word equinox, followed by a gallery of fall images with quotes to match.

There's something about fall that's endlessly inspiring, don't you think?

After science, it's time for ELA.

It's impossible to watch the leaves turning, and falling, and the branches turning bare, the sky darkening earlier without thinking of poetry. So, we've link to some wonderful fall poems, and then fun prompts for students to write their own.

Or you!
