Kindergartners read the book "Fletcher and the Falling Leaves." In this book,
Fletcher (a fox) tries his best to take care of his favorite tree. But no matter what he does, it's leaves keep falling off. We learned about autumn and talked about why the leaves change colors and fall off the trees. We also learned about warm colors--red, yellow and orange. For out art project we used real leaves from a variety of trees to make crayon rubbings using the texture of the leaves. Our rubbings were made using black crayons, and after we filled our papers with leaves we used watercolor paints to give the leaves some warm color.
