A perfect thing to do with a leaf, I think. Perfect!
Anna ( and Annie).... I don't believe that a leaf has ever appeared so beautiful to me. I find Annie's rendering compelling because the colors are not limited p the autumn palette to which we so often limit children ( red, yellow, orange) The blue, green and brown of Annie's leaf are suggestive of the deep and varied hues and moods of this season. I so appreciate the magic when a teacher's offerings inspire a child's ability to see and represent their reality. Thank you, Anna. Thank you, Annie!
Brilliant. As a studio teacher myself, I am delighted to see how some of the hundred languages are being used to gain a deeper understanding and connection with leaves. Have you seen the DVD from Ann Pelo & Margie Carter (Harvest Resources) called "To See Takes Time?" I just watched it again last weekend, and imagine that, it focuses on a long-term study of leaves!

Mia -I just noticed that dvd at NAEYC, but didn't buy it. Now I wish I had. Thanks for posting -now I have a new blog to read -yours!
I'm impressed. Great stuff, Anna.
