It does not feel like fall here. Not even close. We don’t really get fall at all but I feel like it’s time to start celebrating the leaves changing, pumpkins, and snuggling on the couch. So these fall beginning sounds cards are helping me to get into the fall mood.
Logi-Bear is my last child to teach how to read and I am trying to relish every moment. Honestly, he’s been the easiest so far out of all three. Not the faster, but the easier. He so wants to learn to read that he is willing to do much more. But he especially loves activities where he gets to hold something so I have a lot of cards and such that he can fiddle with!
I wanted to create these cards and use vocabulary related to fall, not just have words on leaves! So the cards double as fall vocabulary.
Cards Included in the Fall Beginning Sounds Set
There is a matching letter leaf card for each picture (including the doubles). The pictures and letters do match with the color of the leaf. But there are 2-4 matches per color so they cannot just match with color.
P is for pumpkin! We are working on segmenting letter sounds so being able to sound out a word is coming in handy!
I would just set these out and let them match. They would be great for ‘strewing’ (for those who don’t know, strewing is an unschooling approach where things are left out with the intention of naturally attracting the child). I just learned about strewing and it’s an interesting concept! I’m pretty sure if I left these out somewhere, one of my kids would feel compelled to mach them correctly.
Sadly, our leaves dont change here and we don’t really get acorns.
