Preschool Homeschool Fall Harvest Unit

It's Fall y'all!!!  I have been waiting 7 long years to experience Fall again.  Sorry California, your beaches are nice; but they don't hold a candle to a nice maple tree turning fire red.  
Check out some pictures from Porter's week learning all about Fall!
Nothing says Fall better than farmers and leaves!
Speaking of leaves, Porter had fun with this tracing activity.
Oh man!  I lost track of how many time we did these wake up, warm up activities this week!  Porter LOVED squashing the playdoh balls.  Start by saying the letters, and then try flipping over our letter flash cards and have your little one work on 1:1 correspondence.  If your child is really up for a challenge, take out some picture cards from your letter sounds tubs and have them squash the letter that pictures begin with!
We talked about how leaves change color in the fall.  After we colored our worksheet, we went on a nature walk and looked for different colored leaves!
This worksheet was done on one of those days where Porter wanted nothing to do with crayons.  Instead of getting flustered, I said "Do you want to play with stickers?" "Yes I would Mommy," Porter replied.  Boom!  We worked on size discrimination with this activity.
The hands in this picture belong to my older daughter, Kylie, who is 5.  Porter wanted no business with this activity, but Kylie loved it!
The weather was not in our favor on the day of our outdoor scavenger hunt, but we enjoyed hunting from the front windows with binoculars.
Our Fall Harvest Unit is 150 pages of fun!  Check out our website to purchase your own copy and to learn more about our full year totschool and preschool curriculum.

Preschool Homeschool Heart Unit

This week, Porter and I learned all about hearts!  Hearts is week 17 of our 46 week preschool curriculum that is geared towards 2 and 3 year olds.
Did you know most of our printables come in black and white and color?  Go to town Mom and Dad!  It is so relaxing!
Our heart theme shelf was fun to create this week.  Aside from Valentine's Day decor, we only have that little heart puzzle piece in the house.  I had to get creative with some other shapes!
This week, Porter learned all about the number 12.
During our art block, Porter made celery heart stamps.  If you are handy with a pairing knife, you can make potato and apple stamps too!
J, K, and L were the letters of the week.  Porter's pen control has really improved over the last month!
One of the math activities this week had Porter pasting hearts into a jar.  Is you little one good with scissors?  They could help cut out the hearts!
We also worked on 1:1 correspondence this week!
I usually use our letter sound tub cards with this sorting worksheet, but I switched it up this week and used small toys!
Porter said his best friend was his sister!  My Momma heart is full!

I can't believe there is only one more week left in our shapes semester!  Its never to late to start your preschool at home adventure.  Feel free to email me or check out our website for more information on our full year curriculum packages.
