We found a sweetgum tree on our walk, along with magnolia trees, and a few bushes with larger leaves that were very round. There are many oaks along the way, but we have quite a few oak leaves from our scrub oaks and live oak. While we were gone for a leaf collecting walk, the younger children used leaves that I had already collected to make "leaf men/women".
Just as each child is unique, each leaf man/woman was unique.
We read stories about how to be a Super Friend, then practiced being a Super Friend while we were in circle time, during play, and again later as needed. We also read stories about leaves falling and being peaceful.
