When the leaf blew in, lots of silly things happened at the farm!
Use these materials with the book When the Leaf Blew In by Steve Metzger.
A circular barnyard tale about the series of events set off by a simple leaf blowing in the barn!
For kids who love If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and have exhausted those tales, this is another nice little chain reaction story. The illustrations are simple and the text is too. Fun for Preschool or Kindergarten lessons about barnyard animals, autumn and seasons. This story is perfect for sequencing lessons, action words, animal attributes and retellings!
