Preschool Fall Themes - Apple Harvest Time

Here in the US, when we think of fall we think of turning leaves, apple picking, and pumpkins in the field. Try these preschool fall themes using apples.

You can use these for circle time, for math activities, and for color recognition. The possibilities are numerous here and I have found that my preschoolers even come up with their own ideas!

Circle Time-

tell everyone to bring an apple for show and tell. Have everyone present their apples to the circle, and note the different colors, sizes, and shapes of the apples. Make a chart on the wall of how many apples are red versus green versus yellow, small versus big, round versus oval, stem versus no stems, etc.

How Many Apples Tall am I

teach children about different ways of measuring people- inches, centimeters, etc. Get each child to lay down on the ground and measure how many apples tall they are. Compare everyone’s results on a chart, tallest, shortest, most common, etc.

Snack time - Apple Pizza

1- Give each child half a toasted hamburger bun or English muffin. Have them put apple sauce for the sauce, cream cheese for the cheese, and cinnamon on top for the spice. Toast the apple pizzas in the oven for one or two minutes to warm the applesauce and to melt the cheese.

If you like these preschool fall themes, check out the other ideas in the Preschool Planner.

There are Two Editions now for the Preschool Planner: Basic or Platinum.

If you prefer lessons which have ideas for the Toddler Age, go here to the second volume of lessons. There is an entire bonus section devoted to TODDLERS.

Send me any ideas you would like to share and I will post them on my Blog.
