I love the colors of fall. Our first activity at school for fall is to paint a fall leaf. We use the colors of red and yellow as these are the first two colors we have discussed. Also, because our next color is orange and it helps to incorporate the mixing of two colors to get another color.
It's a great and easy fall activity that just adds so much color and vibrancy, but also secretly teaches that yellow and red make orange when mixed.
Second, I have been getting many search requests for leaf patterns. I have been out on the net, looking for good ones, but haven't come up with any good large ones. I thought I would scan mine in and post it. If you click on the picture it should come up, then you can print it out(I hope). I'm still learning a lot of this stuff.
A very kind and internet savy friend of mine sent me these two links. Thanks kind friend: http://www.abcteach.com/sb/25.pdf, http://www.abcteach.com/free/c/coloringpage_maple_leaves.pdf
