#SoCS June 22/19 – Leaves

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “leaves.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

What an apt prompt, as I have been thinking of leaves this week!

We are discussing Mini Beasts as a topic, in both of my classes these few weeks, Nursery and Reception, and leaves feature heavily, because slugs, snails and caterpillars like to eat them, black fly like to destroy them, ladybird larvae are often found on them in the playgrounds, etc.

Kids love us. And they love to bring in topic relevant presents, whether it is a dead fly or a leaf with a bug on it, to live snails brought lovingly to us, via their pockets! 🤢 Leaves a bit of a nasty taste…


We are also becoming adept at cutting out leaves freehand for myriad activities too, from leaves ready for them to hole punch, to small ones for them to use in collage… Fun and games!

And there you have it. Leaves. EYFS style!†

    Leaves definitely play an important part in nature, from bugs to crafts to kids with bugs on leaves 😄 Wonderful Sister 💜

    I remember activities like that, and I remember putting absolutely everything in my pockets. 🙂

    Its so funny, Ritu. When I read mini Beasts the first thing that came to my mind was the Beast from the East storms last year. With this idea in my head, the post didn’t make sense immediately and I had to go back and restart it. The mind is such a strange thing.

    Ours too, Ritu! Against the German Oak we got the Oak processionary (Thaumetopoea processionea). I read UK got them too. One has to see it calmly, because we Germans like to carry out processions in church (cathoic). Lol Michael
