The one shown above has a little poem, “On this fall tree you can see, I’ve left little parts of me!” but I actually had three choices of trees for the students to choose from….
We used stamp pads in green, brown, red, purple, orange and yellow, and we used their fingerprints to make the leaves. If you don’t have stamp pads or don’t care to use them, leaf stickers or leaf stamps work great, too.
For some of my students we read the book, The Biggest Leaf Pile, and as we “met” each color leaf in the book and added leaves to our tree. At the end, we added leaves that were falling to the ground.
With other students, I just did articulation drill and allowed the students to add 3 leaves to the tree after each round of drill. The possibilities really are endless.
Hope yours turn out just as cute!
I’d love for you to post photos of your little masterpieces on my facebook page!

Love these! BTW, as a New Englander I have to say that, although the colors are beautiful, the raking is annoying!!!
hahahah Thanks Carrie! I really have to make it to New England one fall!! I've only been there in the spring. If you ever make to the deep south in the fall all you will see are sticks on trunks! LOL
