repair shed roof

A tree limb fell on shed and made a hole through the roof

Since it is not easy to get single piece of shingle, I am planning to use a piece of aluminum, some nails and waterproof tape all around to fix it.

Is this acceptable fix?

Not really, to do it right, so that it doesn't come back to haunt you in the future, you should remove shingles, cut out and replace the wood decking, then re-shingle.

Thanks much.

Actually, I am replacing the ply, but instead of shingles , using aluminum ( the one used for flashing) .

Let me see if I can find single piece of shingle and a small roll of tar paper

Sometimes a hardware store or building supply has partial packages of shingles that were returned. It may not match but would be better than flashing. They might even give a couple of shingles to you, never hurts to ask.
