Tot School - Fall Theme

Xander is 23 Months Old

We took a short break from our Mommy & Me Alphabet Units to do a Fall Theme.  We both enjoyed the break from routine!  

This was his book shelf for the week.  We own some great fall books and were also able to get some great ones from the library.  I really like the Acorn series that Fall was from.  Xander LOVED the Squirrels book (although we have the much cheaper, paper back edition). We read it over and over.

3 Part Cards
I made some Fall Themed 3 Part Cards that you can download here or from the Printables page.  We used the whole cards in the pocket chart and the separate pieces in a tray.  I was very impressed that he could match all the words to the pictures by the end of the week.  I am working on more fall cards that I will be posting as we use them.

Apple and Leaf sorting activity from Homeschool Creations.

Building patterns with our Learning Resources Fall Cards (similar to these).  He really liked the squirrels.

This was actually a number sequencing activity from Busy Bee Kids, but we used it as an introduction to mazes.  I plan to slowly build up to the idea of mazes.  For now, I just had him trace along the leaves with a marker or his finger.

I got three sets of fall stampers from Oriental Trading (Fall Leaves, Fall Pumpkins).  I printed a tree from Style Unveiled to have him stamp onto.  He liked it so much he wanted to do it again.

Leaf Cookies
Xander helped me make some colored cookie dough.  We rolled the colors together and cut out leaves.  They looked better and better the more we re-rolled the colors together.

Xander made this adorable owl at daycare (I HATE that I have to leave him so often, but LOVE our daycare provider).  It fit in perfectly with our fall theme.
