We have started to talk about leaves since all the leaves are changing and many falling now that it is cold here. To start out our time about leaves Little Man did some more dot painting from 2 Teaching Mommies' Leaves Unit.
Since it was rainy outside we weren't able to go out and collect leaves so we made our own leaves. I gave Little Man a piece of contact paper (sticky side up) and some pieces of torn up construction paper. He then stuck the construction paper on the contact paper. When he was finished I put another pieces of contact paper on top to seal it in.
Then I taped an outline of a leaf on top and cut out the leaf to make the leaf shape. When we were finished we talked about the colors and how they were like the colors of the leaves outside.
