Can you smell autumn in the air? Neither can I 🙂 But that doesn’t mean it’s not here! Pretty soon there will be a nip in the air, the leaves will begin changing color and pumpkins will start showing up on door steps. It’s time for us to start thinking about how to bring signs of the new season into the classroom.
There are so many ways to sprinkle autumn themed activities around the room. We have simple things like leaves, seedpods and acorns in our nature tray. We’ll take a field trip to the pumpkin farm and pick some pumpkins to decorate our class with. This also involves a lot of washing and scrubbing… one of the most favorite pass times of 3-4 year olds! We’ll add orange and brown colored items into our art and practical life areas.
We have pictures of many of our October activities in the following posts from last year:
This year I decided to gather together all the pictures I’ve already posted, along with some new activities I’ve created, into one printable album for the month. This way everything will be together in one place and I can use it as a reference for years to come. I love how it turned out!
