Fall takes a little longer to show up around here. So while all of my bloggy friends have been posting fun fall projects, we have been cranking up the A/C and wearing flip flops. Well I decided this week I would just pretend fall had arrived. We made this lovely fall wreath… and suddenly the leaves started falling! I guess it was just in time! =)
what you need: construction paper (fall colors) ~ glue ~ scissors ~ pencils ~ picture of leaves (I printed it from here.)
I cut a wreath shape out of a large brown piece of construction paper.
Little M and I talked about each leaf. We examined the difference in shape, size, color. I explained that my plan was for her to draw leaves similar to the ones on the page, cut them out and then glue them onto the wreath. Then Little M did exactly what she had planned…. something different. =)
Lovely! (What fall wreath would be complete without a skate boarding leaf?)
Little M took control of the camera for a bit to show off some of the “side projects” she was working on.
Questions (to ask your kids): “What do you notice about the shape of this leaf?” “What similarities are there between the Oak Leaf and the Maple Leaf?”
This post is a part of the FALL lesson plan.
Love that she just took over the lesson plan and did things her own way…it still turned out cute and fun and I bet she had a blast 🙂
Little M always takes it and makes it her own. She also always has a blast!!!
