Leaf Man

I attended a workshop a few weeks ago presented by Dan Fee and was introduced to the book Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert.  It is a beautiful book.  The illustrations are just amazing.  In this activity we listened to "Rustle of Spring" by Sinding while listening to the book.  (I know it says "spring" but it really works with this book.)  Then we took portions of the book and dramatized them with colored "leaves".  Students used their critical listening skills and creativity to dramatically join Leaf Man on his journey.

Students in 1st and 2nd Grades did this activity.  Watch the video below of a first grade group listening and dramatizing Leaf Man.
