1. Use a white or light blue background and brown, black or dark orange lettering.
2. Cut a simple tree design out of a brown paper. (You could even use the inside of a large paper grocery bag or two.)
3. Print our leaf and acorn patterns. Have each student cut out one or more shapes from red, yellow, orange or green paper. Instruct each person to write a base word and another word with a suffix as shown. (Adapt for alternate titles.)
See our list of suffixes for further information.
4. Attach the leaves and acorns under the tree and around the border of the display.
Encourage students to add more leaves throughout the fall
with words they encounter in their reading.
Use the same tree and fall leaves with a different title of your choice, such as:
Contact me with your ideas for adapting this fall foliage. I will add them to the list for others to use!
