I thought I'd catch you up on some of the homeschooling units we've completed. This was a leaf unit from a while ago. We painted leaf outlines by taping the leaves down to the paper and painting all the way around the leaf using many short strokes that begin on the leaf and extend onto the paper.
We also made a trees using their own arms and hands as the trunks and branches. On the leaves I wrote words the that they thought of that begin with L. It was a well-rounded activity because the kids practiced tracing, cutting (the grass), pasting, and letter sounds.
We made leaf people.
We ate a yummy palm tree snack.
We also made leaf rubbings.
In addition to these fun activities we also do daily worksheets. reading lessons, handwriting practice, graphing, and just general learning throughout the day!
