I hope you are enjoying this fall season as much as we are.
Here are a few of the many activities we've been doing this month that have been so much fun.
The children love challenges to give them the opportunity to show how much they can do and know. These activities provide that possibility to shine!
For all ages 3-5
1. Cut out leaf shapes from different colors of paper. Give each
child one leaf. Ask the children to find one person with the same
2. Place matching leaf stickers on separate index cards. Give each
child a card and ask them to find the child with their match.
To add challenge:
3. Cut out leaf shapes from different colors of paper. Cut the leaves in half using a puzzle type cut, like zig zag or interlocking pieces. Give each child one half of a leaf, and ask them to find the person with the other half.
You can experiment with these matching and comparing ideas and increase the level of difficulty depending on the ages and abilities of your class.
These are fun, encourage spatial concepts, color matching...so many areas of learning AND the children can move around to do it to use some energy!
Enjoy and come back to visit for more ideas.
