K Leaf Birds

Kindergarten Fall Challenge: Turn a leaf into a bird! 

We had a great time connecting ART with NATURE! 


 First, we glued a feather and a beak to the leaf to create a bird. 


 Next, we glued various rectangles to create branches. 



Finally, we used a piece of cardboard as a stamp to create pine needles.
 We also used a Q-tip to paint bark on our branches. 








These are very playful and unique! 




Some birds are sitting peacefully on a branch while others are flying by. 


Turkeys

Terrific Turkeys!

Small Group PreK had a blast creating a fun Thanksgiving project.

 We were gluing a variety of precut shapes while also counting the number of feathers, legs, and leaves in the project.

I'm planning to have a couple Kindergarten classes complete the project this cycle as well. The K students will draw and cut out most of the shapes themselves. 



Ms. Hyland's class was very busy cutting and gluing the fall tree project as well. 


These are two project examples:
