Thanks, Trish! I have a laminator at homenow so Ill definitely be trying that this fall.I did try the Mod-Podge and the leaflooks awesome! It is pliableandfeels very realistic. It will be interesting to see how it holds up from year to year.

Thank you! I don't know you, but from your post I want to reach out and hug you, but instead I will hug my daughter's teachers when I see them on Monday. Thank you to every teacher for being such an important influence in our children's lives - and especially to Montessori teachers - we are so fortunate!

I wanted to share that I have successfully saved small leaves like this by laminating them in my home laminator! (I have one from staples and use the heavy laminating film pouches.) I laminated leaves two years ago and they are still the same colors and in great condition! It might preserve the leaf better than mod-podge.

a similar story last fall one of our little boys, who had/has a bit of a behavioral problem, pulled an envelope out of his cubby mid-morning and said this was for us, my co-teacher and myself. we were a bit wary b/c it had adult writing on it and we were worried it was a note from mom/dad. we opened it up and it was a piece of note paper with stickers all over it just a sweet and simple little gesture that meant he had thought about us over the weekend and made this for us.

Wow! Isn't that totally why you became a teacher? I just recently decided to stay home for a while with my 2 year old and new baby arriving in December. After teaching for 11 years and loving every minute, I truly miss those teacher moments. Of course, my daughter and I are spending amazing time together, but it's a little different when someone else's child thinks that much of you and what they're learning from you!

I wonder if you could laminate the leaf?

Stephanie

OK ~ This made me tear up. Through the eyes of children, we could all take a little of that leaf as adults and run with it. How beautiful that leaf is, and I must say that I honestly would have stepped on it, walked over it, walked around it, totally would have left it unnoticed. Our children; however, see the world in such an innocent and enlightend way. A beautiful leaf with beautiful fall color. Thanks for sharing, you are a wonderful teacher and enjoy and celebrate with these kiddos!

Thank you for this incredibly timely post--you have no idea how much I can identify with this after a very challenging week of teaching pre-k. Thanks so much!
