An Apple Tree for Back to School

This back to school activity is one of my favourites to do with my students.  It's by Runde's Room, one of my favourite TPT sellers.  This year, I decided to try putting them up on our bulletin board and what better way to showcase them than with a tree!  I love how it turned out and it was super easy to make.  I first tried with tissue paper and it just looked ridiculous.  Then I found a big roll of brown craft paper.  That was perfect.  I ripped, twisted, scrunched, stapled and taped and voilà!

What made it so easy is the fact that a tree just isn't perfect, so there was no point in me even trying to make it look perfect.


I'll be keeping this one up for a while.  As the weather changes, I'll change up the leaves and the student work.  Do you have a favourite go-to back to school bulletin board?
