Leaf Writing

I think fall like weather has finally made it's appearance today.
I hope it sticks around. I'm sipping a pumpkin spice latte, as I share a fall lesson my
class did this week. This idea was inspired by Doris over at Third Grade Thinkers.

 First, I asked my students how many of them ever look at the clouds and imagine or "see" another item. We went outside and practiced just that. After the cloud observation,  I handed out fall colored die cut leaves, and had students make a leaf picture to create a story. What imaginations! Take a look.
