Kindergarten – 1st Grade
Come Little Leaves is a writing activity for beginning writers. In this activity, the students learn two lines from a rhyme, Come Little Leaves written by George Cooper in the early 1900’s. Once they learn the rhyme, two words from the rhyme are removed and the students replace them with words of their choosing. They then fill in the blanks with their replacement words and illustrate their new rhyme. Even though this activity uses a rhyme, it is not a rhyming activity, as the students are not necessarily choosing rhyming words to fill in the blanks. It is, however, a chance for them to use their imaginations and hone some beginning writing and thinking skills. Once the replacement words are chosen, the students then illustrate their “new” version of the rhyme. I hope you and your students have fun with this little activity. Richi Reynolds
