‘L’ is also for Leaves

How fortunate that we are doing the letter ‘L’ this week and reading all about leaves, while outside all the leaves are turning beautiful colors! We found a great book at the library that shows the various shapes of different kinds of trees’ leaves. Then we went out on a leaf hunt to see if we could find and identify the different kinds of leaves we read about.

We went home and pressed some of our favorite leaves between sheets of wax paper.

‘L’ is for Lion and Ladybug

Our special book of the week is The Lion and the Little Red Bird by Elisa Kleven. It’s a really cute story. I had never read it before and chose to use it, crossing my fingers that it would be a good one.

This was a last minute idea that I threw together before lunchtime. Half of a red apple+peanut butter+dried blueberries= edible ladybug!
