This week I added an extension activity for the leaf number sequencing work. Our school district has recently acquired a digital die-cut machine and I had them cut out a bunch of little fall leaves in various colors. I was originally thinking of using the leaves for fall necklace work, then I thought up this activity which has been a real hit with the children.
Into a basket I placed a glue stick, small gluing mat, basket with a pencil, container of bags of numbered leaves, and 3 inch strips of 12X18 blue construction paper.
To do this work, then child lays out the leaves in numerical order on the blue strip. After having their work checked by a teacher they glue each leaf into position as shown below.
