Preschool | Autumn Theme

Saturday, October 17, 2015

Summer is 38.5 months old.

We took a break from our weekly letter focus to enjoy some Autumn-themed activities.  I've said it before, but I absolutely LOVE this time of year!

Our set-up...


A detailed look at some of our activities.  This week was really laid back without much planning.  I used several printables previously prepped from when Abby was little, with a few newer ones mixed in.  We also added in a few extra manipulatives here and there and read MANY books!

Summer went straight for the first tray.  She was so excited for all the CARDS! :)  First, she matched the picture cards, then she wanted to add the words.


We worked on patterns and counting.



She LOVED this scarecrow number puzzle.  It was on repeat all week!


We used little pumpkins (Target Dollar Spot a few years ago) instead of dot markers on this printable.  If you follow me on Snapchat (themagnoliabarn) I shared a video of her in action.


And, dot painting...



She loved these three-part puzzle cards and dot sheet!  Download a free sample here.



Shape, color and letter recognition...



Then, I hid a few random letters in our sensory bin.  She loved hunting through all the textures looking for letters.


  1. What a perfect theme and wonderful time of year. Summer looks like she enjoyed the different activities.
