Poppins Book Nook- Seasons


The theme this month for the Poppins Book Nook is seasons.


We read the book “The reasons for the Seasons” by Gail Gibbons and learned why the seasons change.

Apple Unit

Since the current season is fall and we have been working on a fall unit study, I decided to focus on fall and leaves.  This binder has the different mini-units that we are covering this fall- apples, leaves, etc.

Poppins Book Nook

Each mini-unit has a section in the binder.  This is the leaf section with this printable from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom glued onto a divider for our leaf section.

Since we made a lapbook for our apple study, I decided to do something a little smaller for our leaf study.  Hailey glued these few activities onto the back side of the divider for the leaf mini-unit.

The Leaves book comes from Enchanted Learning.

You can find the accordion style book about why leaves change color here.

I wrote leaf related vocabulary words on leaf shaped cards and we did several activities with those.

There are many pages of work that Hailey did in this mini-unit.  This leaf observation page comes from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom and the super fun leaf unit she has available.

Hailey also did a leaf rubbing.

Fall Tree Craft

She made this Fall Tree Craft, using a leaf to paint.

We also made this Fall Tree Handprint Craft.


Hailey and Hunter dressed up in the color of chlorophyll one day.  It was amazing how excited Hailey was about doing this and how quickly she got ready for school!

  1. We selected this storybook for this month’s Poppins Book Nook theme as well! Great minds think alike 🙂 Love all the learning activities that you tied together to go along with this theme and book. I think that is too cute that your kids dressed up like chlorophyll! Thank you for also including and using my Leaf Unit Study 🙂
