This week in preschool we learned about Fall. When the boys got here, we went outside and they each found a pinecone that was open, then we went inside and put them in a bowl of water. When a pinecone is open it means it's dehydrated, so when you put it in water and it gets enough water it will close up.

We came inside and learned the letter F, I have a cute little fridge toy that says the letter and it's sound and a word that the letter starts with, the boys thought it was fun and wanted to do it over and over again. It said "I love to f f f f flyyyyyyy"
They also learned number Four and that it also started with the letter F.
Then they each took a turn tracing big and little F.
We went back outside and did some Fall exercises. We stretched like trees blowing in the wind. Then we were leaves falling from the trees, they fell gently, bouncy, spinning, and some other silly ways.

For snack time, we had pumpkin cookies.
For our activity, we made Fall trees. I traced their arm for the trunk of the tree and their hand for the branches, then they used their paints and did finger prints for the leaves.
K doing his tree.
At the end we played Fall Bingo.

After the game, we read the book, the little red hen.

Here is one of the pinecones mostly closed up.
