Blankets of Leaves

November 4, 2012 - Preschool Weekly

This Week’s Adventures: The leaves are falling down – and we are ready to catch them! We explored beautiful autumn leaves and the rustling places they rest.

Favorite Activities: Leaf crowns and leaf rubbings were part of the fun this week. We made leafy garlands and even watched a special puppet show about them. We estimated how many leaves were in our guessing jar and graphed the colors of leaves we found outside. Words starting with “Ll” were easy to spot on the trail: leaves and logs are everywhere!

Next’s Week’s Theme: Blankets of Leaves (continued)

Try this at home: Try to find these colors of leaves: red, brown, orange, yellow, purple and green.
