Fall Learning Activities

Tana wrote her name on the top and then made her own leaf patterns.

Keely did her own pattern too!

Leaf Scissor Practice

I traced leaf patterns onto construction paper and had Joey and Tana cut out the leaves and glue the leaves to construction paper.  

ABC Fall Family Tree
Skills: scissor practice, writing, letters, patterns, counting, ordinal numbers, addition, most and least
Addie was home sick from school the other day, so we did a fun Fall Project for school.  
I cut out the fall leaves.  Addie wrote the letters of the alphabet on the leaves.  She only wrote the letters that people in our family start with.  Then she wrote each family members name on the corresponding leaves.  I traced Addie's forearm and hand onto brown paper and she cut it out.  Addie glued the tree and leaves onto the paper.  She wrote Addie's ABC Fall Family Tree. (We also added green construction paper for grass)

I had Addie answer questions about her project on the back of the paper.  She counted all of the names, identified the pattern of leaves, Identified ordinal numbers, identified most and least number of names, and did an addition problem

Roll and Say Fall ABC
Skills:  letter recognition
I placed the page on a lid for my cake pan.  Tana and I took turns tossing/rolling an acorn onto the page and then saying the letter the acorn landed on!
