Leaf Man

I got this great fall idea from my former co-worker, Catherine. She read the book Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert and the students made their own leaf men.

Great idea! We use an activity from the Handwriting Without Tears program, (called Mat Man), where you build a person using wood pieces and shapes. It really helps young kids learn to include all of the parts when drawing people. I'll bet Leaf Man works the same way. I can't wait to try it! Thanks!
