Along my travels, I landed at Cooper's Rock outside of Morgantown, WV.
Fall is beautiful...though I will say that Spring is still my favorite season with it's awakening and being a season of hope after the cold cloistered winter. Fall brings me back to school, but also to a layer of melancholy that we are circling back round that seasonal cycle again with winter ahead. But it circles me back to the beauty and brilliance of color too.
This all had me thinking about these two Free Tech For Teacher's posts by Richard Byrne:
- "Why Do We Have Fall--A Post Inspired by My Daughter" ~ A sweet post where Richard details why he was led to research some edtech tools due to 4 year old conversations with his daughter.
- "Resources for Teaching and Learning About the Colorful Leaves of Fall" ~ According to the 2020 Fall Foliage Prediction Map in Richard's list of resources, I was on the line of "partial" & "near peak" in West Virgina that weekend. Good videos also are included in this post.
The wind is whipping a bit around me today as I write this--a sunny yet cooling day. A shower of colorful leaves drifts downward, bristling about, like autumnal confetti. I think that means Fall is here.
