Fall Themed Practical Life

This week, I got out all of our little fall pieces. It's nearly October in New England, and we are just now seeing a few signs of Autumn. My girls are very excited about the changing seasons, so we just updated our Practical Life- Physical Skills work with some objects from a craft store. These items were 75% off the day after Thanksgiving last year, total cost for the update was $2.05.  Today they were busy and independent for the entire work period.  Every year, everything old is new again!  I also used these items to create our Fall Sets Basket for counting, sorting, and numeration.

Apple Transfer using srtawberry huller

Spooning Pumpkin Transfer (there's exactly 10, as a hidden preparation for decimal system work)

Fall Leaves Pouring Work, Handled Pitchers.  One clear, one opaque for a challenge.

Painted (by me) Acorn Scooping.  I found these wonderful bowls in China Town, NY.  I love Montessori Souvenirs!

Right off the bus, she hits the Practical Life shelf.  Her sisters yelled, "Mom put new work out!" at the bus stop.  And off we went!!!


Looks amazing :) I need to start preparing fall in my room also!
I really wish I could just send my kids to you :) Looks amazing.
