|I love anything rainbow colored!|
|Now this is a HUGE leaf.|
|Cayden thinks you can't see it very well because of the "leaf's veins".|
I'm wondering if it would work better if I let the leaves dry out a little
before pinning them??
|I was so excited because this was the first time my baby (well, |
he IS 4) showed any interest in a Pokey Pin project. Look how
great he did as his little hand muscles got strengthened AND he
practiced naming the letters in his name.
So, I did go out and help Mr. Miner with some raking, but, have no fear, my classroom and blogging was not far from my mind as I did so:
Can you believe that all of these leaves came
from the same exact bush? It doesn't seem as
odd until you put them together like this!
I was excited to be able to gather 20 HUGE leaves like Cayden found so that I could do our regular Pokey Pin session on leaves instead of boring, old paper! I think we will write "We Like Fall" to make sure we are practicing our popcorn words while we strengthen our little hand muscles.
I would be remiss if I didn't include the other things I was thinking about (and watching) as I raked leaves on this beautiful fall day!
