Hi there, I’m Jax. Welcome to my site about K-12 educational materials and supplies. When I was attending school, the books were easily decades old at the newest. The books often had outdated information the teachers had to correct during the lesson. My teachers would print handouts that explained why the information was no longer relevant. I want to prevent this issue by sharing information about finding the right supplies, including books, for the classroom without breaking the bank. I will talk about using innovative online learning materials in lieu of actual textbooks for certain subjects. Hopefully this information can help children learn more effectively.
As fall starts to really kick into full swing, now is a great time to do some fun, fall-themed activities with your preschool class. Here are three fun fall leaf activities that you can do with your preschool class.
#1 Fall Color Leaf Walk
Young children are fascinated by the changing colors of the leaves on the trees outside. Take advantage of your class's interest in the change of colors by taking them on a fall color walk and leaf search. When you take them on your fall color walk, discuss with your class why the leaves are changing colors.
Ask your students to try to pick up as many different colored leaves as they can. When you get back to your classroom, have your students sit in a circle and discuss what color leaves that they found. Make a list of the different colored leaves that you found and discuss with your class how the leaves have changed from green into all the colors that are on your list.
#2 Fall Leaf Picture
Next, you can take the fall leaves and use them to create a picture. Encourage your kids to use the leaves to create a picture. You can demonstrate to your students how to use the leaves to create an animal or to create a tree full of leaves.
Provide your students with construction paper, glue, scissors, crayons, and markers. Ask your students to just glue the leaves onto the paper or use the leaves to create a other objects. Allow your students to get creative with their fall leaf pictures.
#3 Fall Leaf Place Mats
You can use all the leaves that your students collected for another fun sensory art activity. What you are going to want to do is take some leaves and take them to the table. You can also use leaf cutouts if you want.
Then, put construction paper on top of the cutouts. Provide your students with crayons and allow them to color over the leaf patterns. This will transfer the pattern of the leaves onto the paper. This will teach your students how they can transfer textures onto paper.
Finally, take some contact paper and put it on the front and back of the paper. This will help turn the contact paper leaf rubbing into a fall place mat that you students can use during lunch time at school.
Embrace the fall with your students and take advantage of beautiful fall leaves with the three great, age-appropriate fall pre-school activities. For more ideas, contact a preschool like Country Day School.
