Gathering Activity: We painted tree trunks with paint brushes and brown paint. Then we sponge painted colorful leaves on our tree.
Circle Time: We read Fall Leaves Fall and sang "Leaves are Falling All Around." We also sorted silk leaves. We also tossed and danced with the leaves as we sang our song.
Snack: We ate cheese and toast cut into leaf shapes.
Nature Walk: We took a nature walk outside and observed the colorful leaves. Each child collected their favorites in a bag.
Art: We created these window sun catchers. We used contact paper. Each child placed their items they collected onto the sticky side on one half of the sheet. Then we folded it over to create a seal and hung them in the window.
