I am a Little Leaf is a fall poem about a leaf. This poem is a great one for Circle Time or to set up in a Reading Center. This has been differentiated so that a variety of students are able to use it. Perfect for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and special education as a circle time read aloud, reading center activity or as part of a garden unit.
