Friday Faves: Fall Edition

7 Oct

Lately, my sessions have been filled with songs about apples, pumpkins, and all things fall…and I CAN’T GET ENOUGH! Can you feel the sweater weather, fluffy scarf, pumpkin spice love? Today, I’m sharing 3 resources that have been making their way into most of my early childhood and school based sessions.

  • Pumpkin Counting Cards from The Kindergarten Connection. Laminate these babies, put them on a clip ring, and you’re ready to roll! Add clothespins for some extra fine motor fun. I like using these cards with improvised songs & familiar tunes like 5 Little Pumpkins. Bonus: the version below is great for counting AND emotion identification.

  • Singing “Button Up Your Overcoat.” I love singing this song acapella with my kiddos on the first chilly day of the year. We have fun making up our own finger play movements, like putting on a coat, signing “apple” and pretending to sleep. This song is especially great for parent-child duos, because it’s fun to give each other a big hug and sing “you belong to me!”
