For Circle Time or Story Time!
Below are some Leaf books
that you may like to read during your Leaf theme week at your daycare, preschool or home school.
We read one or two of the of the books listed below each day to the children during circle time or story time.
After we read a few stories
we will show the children a Leaf finger rhyme or sing them a Leaf song
to help the children learn about this week's theme.
Next, we will have the children create a Leaf craft,
after that we take the children outside.
When the children come back inside we will have them focus on a fine motor activity or learning activity involving either a game, science, socail studies, language arts, sensory, gross motor, or some other type of activity with colors, numbers, shapes or letters about Leaves.
