    fall activity

    We write fall cinquains. When we finish writing, we create a bulletin board to display the poems. The decorations are leaves that we make out of coffee filters. Each kid gets 3 filters. They trace die cut leaves onto the filters with pencil. Then we talk about fall colors and the kids use 3 markers to color in the leaves ( color darkly). When the markers dry, I sprinkle water on each filter so the colors run together. Experiment with this so you will know how much water to use. A spray bottle helps. When the leaves dry, they cut them out and we staple them to the bulletin board.
