I saw a craft pin on Pinterest for making a fall tree out of a small paper bag. [Here’s the link to the original pin.] Ideas started bouncing around in my head about ways to turn this craft into an educational project for my students. I decided that if we used full-sized grocery bags to make larger trees, my students could add apples to their trees. These apples would have enough space to write not only vocabulary words but definitions and sentences with the words as well. I knew my students would enjoy the change from our normal vocabulary routine. Boy, was I correct!
We made our vocabulary trees using vocabulary words from the book Johnny Appleseed by Steven Kellogg.
