With the new Fall Fun Printables pack just staring at me, we had to work on them together!! If anything, it got us MORE excited for fall to really be here! The weather has been so nice and cool during the day and even at night, so it was a great week to talk about the changes that fall brings.

We had some fun fall books in our reading pile for the week and read several of them each day. Everyday we did the following {before we started into our workboxes} ~ read a book or two from our reading pile {see the carousel below} and reviewed our vocabulary words. Most of the printables were from my Fall Fun Printables pack unless otherwise noted {there are some more great links below too!}.

A peek into our Workboxes

Fall Fun Workboxes

Extra activities after workboxes



Monday ~ fingerprint tree {draw a tree trunk and use our fingerprints for the leaves

Tuesday ~ Caramel Apple ‘Nachos’: slice apples thin and drizzle homemade caramel sauce over them {and chocolate chips!}

Wednesday ~ Apple Wreath stamping


Here are a few pictures and look into our week of fall fun….



The Read! Build! Write! mats are always a hit {there’s a fall themed set too!} and Kaleb is getting so much better at finding the letters now. It can still take a bit to ‘build’ the word, but he still works at it. We usually do only 2 words a day because of the time it takes to put it together.

The ‘Find the Word’ sheet isn’t always his favorite activity in the packs, but when we pulled out the Do-A-Dot markers…he was rather happy to participate. :) If it works….



We used the apple seed printout out of the Apple themed pack from 2 Teaching Mommies along with some dried black beans to work on counting with 1:1. I pulled out our number/counting cards and would show Kaleb a number and have him put that many seed inside the apple.


We worked on adding simple numbers together with our apple addition. I would put two numbers on the mat for Kaleb to add together and he would make the right number of mini apples from playdough and then put the right number as the answer.

The connect the dot acorn ~ HUGE hit! He especially liked that he could color it in when he was done. The first day I slid the paper in a sheet protector and he used a dry erase marker to connect the dots. On the second day, he used a pencil and then colored it in to finish it.

Other Fun

Kaleb loved stamping the apples to make an apple wreath {something he will proudly be hanging above his desk this week. And the do-a-dot pages…pure happiness everyday. Where the boy gets satisfaction having every dot filled is beyond me {cough cough}.

    I am definately not as fun as you! I am trying to fit some of your logistical wonders into  our video curr, though and use some of your other stuff as things to do when:
    *mama’s on the phone
    *at a dr. appointment while waiting
    * rainy days!

    When do we get to see a shot of you r whole schoolroom?

  9. Thank You for the Fall Fun Printables.  I love them and I am planning on using some this week.

    Just wanted to say thank you very much for your creativity and generosity.

  11. I just discovered your blog and I love it! I am trying to download the fall fun printables pack, but it’s not working. Is it not available anymore or is it working and something is wrong with my computer?
    Thank you for all of the wonderful ideas!
