We had some beautiful fall days this past week. We are finally starting to have some crisp mornings. We enjoyed learning about the many different types of leaves, why leaves change color, and we talked about the different attributes of leaves. All of our centers were fall related. We sorted math facts and matched them up with the tree that showed the sums. We created short a, i, and short o words using letter tiles. They put fall words in ABC order then did a fall fill in making complete sentences. At one center they did leaf sorting and graphed the leaves then did some addition problems by joining sets of leaves. At listening center they listened to Clifford’s First Fall and then got to play a sight word game called “Leaf Blower”.
We also decorated our hallway with fall trees made from puzzle pieces and these “leaf men”.
