We’ve been hit by Fall fever. Every morning my students unload their pockets and dump leaves and acorns into our tiny little nature basket. We’re going to have to get a bigger one. It’s been so cool to see the children get leaf crazy.
Yesterday, two of them made a chart showing different kinds of leaf shapes. And today we went out and found some still-green Ginko Biloba leaves. When we got back to school they compared the leaf to their chart — they decided that it was closest to a reniform.
