The leaves are turning beautiful colors now, so it's time to read about fall! Here are a few of the books we read this week. Mouse's First Fall by Lauren Thompson showed two mice having fun in all colors, sizes, and shapes of fall leaves. Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert told about the life of a tree and how it changes with seasons. Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson is about a fox who thinks his favorite tree is in trouble when it begins to lose its leaves. Fletcher tries so hard to help his tree and doesn't realize that what happens is just part of nature.
Then we made trees with paper trunks and branches and lots and lots of colorful tissue paper leaves. Some made one big tree, others made two. Som embellished their work with fall stickers. Doesn't the table look like it's covered in beautiful fall colors?
