Pressed leaves and a poem

When the autumn leaves were in full swing and truly very beautiful,
we gathered several and pressed them.

We learned how to press leaves

After waiting several weeks, we've put them in our nature notebooks:

While I was helping the mathematical, logical kiddo get the leaves put in (pictured on the right-see the similarities in the types of leaves in the rows),
another kiddo was doing this...

It may be hard to see.
The creative one drew a tree with leaves falling
and wrote a poem:

I Like Fall

I like fall.
Down the leaves
down they fall.

Wishing you homeschool blessings,

I love the poem! And how neat to see their personalities even in the ways they add their leaves to their books.

Thank you for linking up to Learning Laboratory at Mama Smiles =)

I'm so glad I found your blog. Your nature thoughts have inspired me to start making school more interesting (and I'm the kid, not the teacher.)
