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.

|Spooning Pumpkin Transfer (there's exactly 10, as a hidden preparation for decimal system work)|
|Painted (by me) Acorn Scooping. I found these wonderful bowls in China Town, NY. I love Montessori Souvenirs!|
