Preschool Lesson: The Changing Seasons

I chose The Changing Seasons for our theme this week after Pooh Bear noticed the leaves changing colors and falling to the ground.  We will focus on Fall this week and Winter next week. We are reading fall books and painting with fall colors.  We will taste some apple cider and make a baked apple treat. Our letter of the week is B. Our number is 2. Our advanced concept for the older preschooler is before, between and after.

For our crafts this week we are decorating a pumpkin. We may also make some crafts with fall colored leaves that we collect on our nature walks this week.

We glued felt shapes on our pumpkins. This was a fun and easy way for a toddler to decorate a pumpkin. There was no mess to clean up and later we can use the pumpkins for pie and dry the seeds for a treat.
