PLAY

Autumn Tales

Fall is full of interesting things outside: nuts, berries, twigs, and leaves of all shapes and colors. Help your child collect some of these interesting natural objects while walking outside. Provide paper and glue so your child can create pictures using the leaves and other items. As your child tells you what is happening in the pictures, write down her words. Activities like this help children learn about stories and that stories are made up of words. Help your child share their Book of Autumn with others! 


SING

Falling Leaves

Falling, falling, falling leaves,
Mother Nature, did you sneeze?
AAAHHH-CHOO!

Red ones, yellow ones, orange and brown,
Big ones, little ones on the ground.

Falling, falling, falling leaves,
Mother Nature, did you sneeze?
AAAHHH-CHOO!
