Tot School- Fall week 3

This is our third week of fall in Tot School. It is amazing how many fall themed activities I have found. Sorry this post is late! Little Guy is 29 months old.

The first tray was the clothespin counting activity that he did last week, from the fall pack at Homeschool Creations.  He enjoyed this activity, and didn't mind seeing it for a second week.

Next we did an apple and leaf sort from the fall pack at Homeschool Creations.  I left the apples and leaves in groups of two so he had to first cut all the pictures apart.  Then he sorted and glued them based on if they were an apple or a leaf.
The apple goes on this side!
Leaf rubbing was a fun activity.  We used plastic leaf impressions.  I taped the impressions to the table, then taped a piece of paper over it and showed Little Guy how to rub the side of the crayon over it to make the rubbing.  He was proud of these and hung them on the side of his picnic table!
The leaf is starting to show!
The next activity was inspired by Moms Have Questions Too.  This was a spooning activity, where Little Guy had to use a spoon to transfer all of the sunflower seeds (another use of our homegrown seeds!) from the bowl to the plate.  He was pretty good at this.
The seeds go here.
He also began looking at the book Leaf Shapes from the leaf pack at 3 Dinosaurs.  I would read the page to him and then he could color it.  He did not work too long in this book, so it will probably re-appear!
I see the square!
The last tray was cutting practice!  He loves to cut, so I provided strips to him from the Thanksgiving Cut It Out pack from This Reading Mama and the fall pack at 3 Dinosaurs. We then used some of the turkeys to make patterns. 
Cutting apart the turkeys.

This turkey goes next.
In addition to our Tot Trays, we did a couple of other activities.  From This Reading Mama, we did a rhyming word activity.  Little Guy cut apart the pictures and then glued them on.  All the words rhymed with rake, so as he glued them, I would say the word and rake, to start practicing rhyming.
All these words rhyme with rake.
I also put some printables in a binder for him to do.  I have some dry erase crayons, so when the papers are in sheet protectors he can write on them and then the crayon wipes right off.  I used printables from Homeschool Creations 3 Dinosaurs,
I can trace the line!
This was a busy week!  Next week we will show some of the Thanksgiving activities we worked on.
