We went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch today. There were lots of great learning opportunities for the children to experience. They got to feed goats ... find their way out of corn maze ... play in a hay fort ... and see so many different kind of pumpkins and fall gourds.
Fall is always my favorite time of year ... there so many fun outdoor activities that can be done with young children!! Please leave a comment and let me now where your favorite place is to take your little ones.
I made colored popcorn seeds for our fall corn and scarecrow theme. I was really pleased with how easy they were to make and how well they turned out. I used regular popcorn seeds that are sold in jars or bags (not the boxed microwave kind).
I put a little over a half a cup of seeds in a zip lock bag and then added ten drops of food color to start with. I closed the bag up an gently moved the seeds around in the bag so the food color dispersed and coated the popcorn seeds. I add a few more drops of food color in the bag if I was not happy with the color and continued to move the seeds around in the bag.
After the seeds had been coated (they will look a little blotchy at first) I let them sit for about ten minutes and then moved the seeds around in the bag again to make sure they were all coated. I let them sit about an hour longer and the poured the seeds onto paper towels to let them dry.
I will have a sensory tub filled with the colored popcorn seeds as well as discovery bottles. We are also using the seeds for a project which will be in my next video.

I made a ghost roll and remove activity for our math center. I printed the pattern on cardstock paper and cut out the ghost and glued it on to a black piece of cardstock paper. I put twenty purple pom poms (with self-adhesive magnets in on the back) on the ghost mat. Children rolled the dice and removed the same number of pom poms from the ghost mat. They continued until all pom poms had been removed. They also did this activity in reverse an rolled the dice and put the same number of pom poms on the ghost until all of the pom poms were placed on the ghost.

The free daily printable this week is Ghost Letter Match which is a great activity for letter recognition and review. In this activity children put a letter in the blank circle on left ghost and find the matching letter circle and put in in the blank circle on the right ghost.
Children can do an upper to upper ... upper to lower ... and lower to lowercase match. I put self-adhesive magnets on the back of each letter circle so the activity could be done on a metal tray.
Grab the patterns for free until Sunday October 19th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section.
The free daily printable this week is Pumpkin Number Puzzles which is a great activity for number recognition and review. In this activity children find and put together to the two pumpkin halves with the same number.
I put self-adhesive magnets on the back of the puzzle pieces and put them on a magnetic board. Grab the patterns for free until Sunday October 12th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section.
