Creating with Nature in Kindergarten!

In Kindergarten we have been talking about beautiful things in nature.  The students brought in their own bag of beautiful things in nature.  We read the book Leaf Man by Lois Elhert and discussed how she used leaves to create pictures that tell a story.  We then made our own creations using leaves, pine cones, seeds, acorns, rocks, grass and branches that tell our story.

  1. Thank you for sharing your leaf stories! All of you are so creative. I brought some gorgeous Maple leaves from Toronto when I was there at a conference and I am going to take a picture of them to show you on our school Instagram. Maybe you could help me write my story? (One leaf reminded me of fireworks as there were so many beautiful colors on it.) Fall is my favorite time of year!!! What is your favourite season?
