Each day we have a letter, math and fine motor activity, as well as story time. Sometimes we do gross motor skills, science, music, art or a field trip.

This week really got me in the mood for apple cider, crisp weather, leaf raking and all things autumn. Sadly this week was a little short because Thursday I had a bout of food poisoning.

10 Fat Turkeys, a fun book that counts with rhyme the antics of ten fat turkeys.
Fall Leaves Change Colors is a non-fiction book that explains how leaves change color in the fall.
I love all these counting and alphabet books by Sleeping Bear Press. Not autumn centered but about our state Michigan, it counts up using Michigan-y things. It does mention maple syrup and voyagers, which for some reason put me in mind of fall.
This beautifully illustrated counting book counts down from 10 to 1 with each page a different tree and animal as it moves through the autumn season.
Letter T Activities
- We added to our alphabet wall using the template letters from Kinder - Craze. This week we tore a magazine page and glued it to the letter.
- The Little Dude played with our newly made Harvest Play Dough. He used stamps to make impressions in the dough.
- Counting Turkey: I used an applique pattern to cut out a turkey from construction paper. I number the feathers 1 - 10. Little Dude put the feathers in order and glued them down. He also drew the beak and put the little google eyes on dot of glue that I put on the face.
- Puffball counting with autumnal colored puffballs.
Fine Motor Activities
- Hand Turkey - trace a hand put an eye, a beak and waddle, cut it out, color it turkey colors and viola you have a turkey. I used this exercise to work on color recognition saying color this finger red and he would have to choose the correct color.
