Pumpkin & Fall Preschool Fun

I am combining these two themes into one post because sadly, she was totally UNinterested in my fall theme. It would have made a really lame post to be honest. Last year she LOVED the fall theme, see it here.

I talked her into exploring a bit, but didn’t really choose anything on her own, except for the sensory basket…

She loves sorting…

She also sang the fall leaf songs with me, she always likes songs!

Fall Leaf Songs

 

She LOVED this book last year {here’s last year’s Tot School post}, in fact I created an entire Scarecrow Printable Pack because she loved it so much  This year she told me she doesn’t like scarecrows. Figures. We did read it a few times, and she enjoyed the props, but not nearly as much as last year.

She dictated and created an adorable story about a pumpkin, all with a Minecraft theme.

This was probably her favorite printable activity.  It’s from education.com and I used wooden alphabet beads for her to find the missing letters.

We read lots of books, here she was picking out the daily reads while I sat in the bean bag waiting for her to choose!  See our pumpkin books here!

The idea behind Just Color! is simple ~ theme packs all focused around coloring. There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities. The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

Tot School ~ Fall Theme

~ Ladybug is 41.5 Months Old ~Tot-School_thumb3_thumb_thumb


We used printables from various sources, mostly the ones shown below {buttons are linked to source}!  I also used a few items {coloring sheets mainly since Ladybug LOVES to color} pinned to my Fall Theme Pinterest board!

 Scarecrow Printables Fall Printables 

I set up her area with a fall theme and she loved it.  I recreated our fall sensory bin, and added a big scarecrow!  Fall Tot School-3308

Fall Tot School

One of her favorite books is The Falling Leaves and the Scarecrow, so I put little magnets on the back of the printables to make story retelling props. The Falling Leavs and the Scarecrow

I put all of her fall work, which I gathered from various places online {all linked above} into a Fall Notebook, similar to our Christmas Notebooks from last year. I made the cover quickly and forgot to save it {so, no printable to offer, sorry}.Fall Tot School-3310 Each day she chose what she wanted to do.  Most days she did 4-5 activities, and would have done more if I could just spend my entire day with her!  I sorted her notebook into 3 parts, in the front I put coloring pages {not in any sheet protectors}, then I put a section of reusable work {mazes, tracing, etc.}, and then a section just for dot fun printables.  Things that were more project natured {cutting, gluing, etc.} I kept separately in a pouch and pulled out for her to choose something when we worked together.  Here’s a few photos of things she did.

The next day we used dot paint to play again, she loves it!Fall Tot School

Her favorite dot fun was definitely the fall tree.Fall Tot School

She made a leaf arrangement all on her own to set next to her while she colored her mini leaf colors book.Fall Tot School

Cutting, counting and gluing is another very favorite.Fall Tot School

She wanted me to hold her papers while she cut them…Fall Tot School

After she cut them apart I mixed them all up and had her match them all and glue them on a paper…Fall Tot School

Then she wanted to glue on the leftover from her cut-count-glue activity…Fall Tot School

She counted and dot painted the correct number, in our mini Fall Counting book.  This is the first time she has done this printable and she really liked it!

I had no intention of making any new fall printables this year, but of course, Ladybug fell in love with our 2 scarecrow books immediately and asked for a “scarecrow week” so I obliged.  These printables are geared towards tots and prechoolers mostly, they were made specially for Ladybug who is 3 1/2 and I know many of your kiddos may like them too! Cutting, gluing, matching, coloring, tracing, graphing, and more!
