Arbor Day

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Being a Nebraskan, I'm very proud that Arbor Day originated in Nebraska City.  Since today is Arbor Day, I wanted to share this flannel board I created using wooden shapes from the craft store and paper tree d├ęcor sheets from the dollar store.  I found the trees and brainstormed until I figured out how I could use them.

 
 
WHAT'S IN THE TREE?
 
Red bird, red bird,
What do you see
Hidden high up
In the tree?
 
 
Red bird, red bird,
Look with me
There a __________
In the tree.
 
 
We talked about how footballs, soccer balls (or a helicopter) could end up in a tree.  I thought it might be fun to find things that DON'T belong there as well.  I may also do a set with pictures behind the trees of nests, birds, and fruit.  On group of kids kept guessing apples each time.
