1) What is your favorite season? Using your senses, make a table-list of things that show that season.
SEASON: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer
From your table-list, pick words to create an image of your season by drawing a picture and “hiding” your words in your picture.
2) Seasons change and so do you. Think about what new things you learned or did during the last year. What new thing(s) did you learn or do in Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall?
3) An acrostic poem is where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a word. Pick a seasonal word to write an acrostic poem.
