The leaves are falling, the air is chilly, the days are shorter--its Autumn. What better way to celebrate Falling into Autumn, then with storytime - books, songs, stories, pre-literacy tips, and a PODCAST?
1. Listen to the Podcast - Episode 14 - Storytime Seedlings
2. Picture Books for a colorful Fall
3. Fall Fingerplays, songs and stories:
Five Little Leaves
Five little leaves on the tree next door
One fell off and then there were four
Four little leaves all over the tree
One fell off and then there were three
Three little leaves where the wind blew
One fell off and then there were two
Two little leaves sitting in the sun
One fell off and then there was one
One little leaf in the tree all alone
The wind blew and blew, now there are none.
4. Early Literacy Tip:
Changing Seasons, Changing Weather
Talk with your child about how the weather changes from fall to winter.
Look outside, or walk outside and see if you can notice any of these changes together.
