We read "Leaf Trouble" by Jonathan Emmett
We painted on real leaves today and made a print of it. The children paint on the back of the leaf so the veins of the leaf get paint on them.This is what makes the best print.

We did an opposites game, we put opposite cards on the floor and each child gets to take one. Then they look for the person who has their opposite. We will have these at the table as an activity next week.
We did a 5 little leaves rhyme, and "let's pretend" for music time.
We thought of words that start with the letter F.

We listened to a book on CD called "Zomer" by Ned Young
We squirted shaving cream on a tray. Then the children used eye droppers to drip water colors on top. Then we stirred it with a stick to swirl the colors. We made a print of the paint.
