Fall Emergent Reader

Has Fall arrived in your part of the world? At the moment we are enjoying the fall colors and garden harvests. My boys always enjoyed Fall. They would rake enormous piles of leaves to jump in and go to the famer’s market to pick out the perfect pumpkin. It is always a bittersweet time of year for me. I love the warm Fall days but know that winter is just around the corner. Still we always managed to enjoy the Fall days.

One of my favorite activities with kids is to create small seasonal books that invite them to notice the changes in the world around them.

Have you tried making little books with young children? Most kids love doing this. So, with this in mind, we designed a simple printable early reader with a fall theme. It is designed for kindergarten age children who are just starting to practice number recognition and reading simple site words.

This activity would pair well with our fun Apple Themed Bundle
