We would love to see what each of you are doing special in your classrooms and at home for Fall. Feel free to add a comment with your ideas, a link to your website or even something that you've pinned that worked well. Let's create a Fall Resource for our we teach members ! I'll be sharing them on a Fall we teach Pinterest Board too!
We had a lot of fun making these pumpkin crafts. They turned out really cute, and they were great for both fine motor practice and practicing name recognition.

We read stories about "school" during our English as a second language class. It's an enjoyable way to learn school vocabulary in a foreign language and to learn something about school in other countries. You can pick some ideas from my selection of picture books about school in English, French and Italian at http://atelierstorytime.com/2013/10/06/back-to-school
If you can find the book in your country and you are teaching French to your children, try "La maîtresse dit Hello!": it's a bilingual book about a french boy learning English at school. It could be interesting to see what an American or British child learning French react to the story!
We had a great time making these salt-dough ornaments for Halloween -- love using glitter :) and a rolling pin activity is always great fun! You can read the tutorial (and hear what my dog did!) here: http://www.kcedventures.com/blog/halloween-kids-craft-halloween-cos...
We used some of our nature collection to make DIY nature slides! We used the light table and our windows to explore the DIY slides!
And we enjoyed playing will fall leaves & pumpkins on the light table!
We create a math corn maze in our backyard. It was a great way to work on numbers.

We make a fall leaf wreath and hang it on our door. The kids have to use fine motor skills to glue and thread, plus they can count their leaves.
