Maple Room: MWF class
We read "The falling leaves and the scarecrow" by Steve Metzger
We made leaf prints for art. We painted real leaves (that were glued to a heavy cardboard base) with watercolors and then pressed a paper on top to make a print.
|We glued real leaves to a board (vein side up) and gave the children water colors to paint the leaves with.|
|We pressed a paper onto the leaves to make a beautiful fall print.|
We had black paper at the easel with oil pastel crayons.
