Fall Poems

We wrote sensory poems last week.  First we brainstormed which items could go with the senses.  Then I had them pick their favorites and/or add their own to write their personal fall poem.

For some painting fun, they created leaves.  It's important to trace the leaves with a Sharpie marker so they can see the outline after painting.  I cut large sponges into small squares.  Then I had them sponge-paint a leaf with a fall color.  They started with their 2nd-favorite color!  The next day, they added (very lightly) the second color.  They really enjoyed getting to fancy up their poetry!
