    Get the book "Fall Isn't Easy" about a tree that thinks fall is hard because it doesn't know what to do with its leaves. It's a bit silly, but the leaves form things like a hamburger, soccer ball, smiley face, restaurant sign, etc. The kids get a kick out of it and after they make their own Fall Isn't Easy Tree. They tear colored paper to form the top of the tree. The book gives them ideas if they can't think of their own and they all come out different anyway. ALos, I traced a maple leaf onto oaktag and let my student scover it with tissue paper squares in fall colors. The 1st graders can cut them out the next day when they are dry. They look great on a bulletin board.
