1st grade - leaf texture rubbings
On Tuesday morning, I picked a bag full of leaves from the old growth trees in my back yard and brought them for the first grade students to enjoy. There is something very fulfilling in the tactile experience of fall leaves. We talked about the use of the word 'Fall' in place of the word 'Autumn'. Mrs. Penrod's class was tickled when I told them to "leave the leaves on the table" for the next class.
