I read the book, Autumn's First Leaf to begin my class. It not only touches on fall themes, but emotions as well.we have done collage before...so I reviewed safety with scissors, proper glue use, and size expectations. After students completed their work, they were responsible for cleaning up their areas and putting away their collage supplies. We then had a descussion about emotions. I had them make the face of the emotion they said & then tell me how they could draw it. I would demo of my document camera what they were saying. This gave the glue time to dry enough that they would be able to draw and color on their leaves. I felt they turned out great. So expressive!
