October: The Treasure of the Year

September is technically the month that signals the end of summer, but its days can still feel as swelteringly hot as the days of early August. November is devoted to planning Thanksgiving dinner and looking ahead to the holidays. But October is the month that can truly be called fall. October’s name is derived from the Latin word octavus, meaning “eighth” because it was the eighth month in the ancient Roman calendar. Whether you want aphorisms to use as writing prompts for home-school English lessons or need bits of inspiration while working remotely, posting the quotes below on your whiteboard wall is a great way to celebrate October, “the treasure of the year.”
