#Playful Preschool Learning Number Words with Fall Colored Leaves
This week is all about Fall Colors and we enjoyed working with while learning about Fall and Fall Colors. We talked about why the leaves change color during the fall, the temperature change, and more. Right now our leaves are still pretty much green with some hints of yellow for the most part, but Fro Baby does know that the leaves change colors. Since we don’t have any fallen color changed leaves, the foam ones that I found at the Dollar General are going to come in handy for what I want to do. With a little modification of my activity, I opened it up for me to introduce something new but not so new to Fro Baby. Number Words!
Hey everyone and welcome to another Playful Preschool Wednesday post Fall Colors Theme. If you would like to see more activities check at the bottom of this post as well as follow the hash tag #Playfulpreschool.
We are working on numbers today, after seeing an improvement with her troubled numbers (Harvest Time Math) I felt it was okay to introduce the Number Words of a few numbers. Now we only worked on one- five but that’s cause I like to work in batches of five.
What I used:
- Foam Fall Leaves
- Black marker
- Glass beads
How I got it going:
- Wrote the number and the word for the number onto five of the leaves
- Gathered glass beads
- Started to play
This activity went well in letting her see the words and numbers together. We discussed the words under the numbers and counted them out using the glass beads as counters. After two times of me guiding her i let her do it on her own, pointing to the number word and saying it while counting out the glass beads.
Now once she gets better with them I will separate the word number from the number and have her match them up. I find introducing new things to her to lose its fun after 3-5 days and that’s when it’s time to switch it up. So far this is still going, it might be gone by the time this post goes live.
