Wednesday's Curious Learning Tip: Use this beautiful book by Lois Ehlert to spark some creative leaf projects! After reading 'Leaf Man's invite young learners to collect leaves and sticks to create their very own leaf person. Extend the learning by inviting learners to identify local trees by the type of leaves (great guides to leaf identification can be found online!). Once the art is created, extend learning even further by inviting learners to write about the adventures their leaf people might have!
If learners are pre-writing skills, let them share their leaf people stories in circle time. #naturewalk#bringnatureindoors#natureplay#naturallearning#naturalcuriousity#alberta#learning#fall#literacy#creativity#storytelling

'Ciò che conta di fronte alla libertà del mare non è avere una nave, ma un posto dove andare, un porto, un sogno, che valga tutta quell’acqua da attraversare."
I mentioned in my previous post Vancouver is considered a temperate rainforest...Stanley Park is the rainforest bit 😁. Walking through on the trails we came across this knarled mossy tree which I really caught my eye...will probably make this into a large print at some point!
