Thanks for stopping by for the Fall Favorites Blog Hop! My name is Lindsey Law from Miss Law's Kinders, and I have a confession. I am OBSESSED with fall. I spend the majority of my year looking forward to fall, and I am in a much better mood when the fall weather begins making its way into Southern Indiana. My favorite thing about fall is all of the activities and events that go on. My favorite thing I get to do with my Kinders in the fall is our pumpkin picking field trip. What's so great about that? So much! Not only is it a fun time to go and pick pumpkins, but we also learn so much, too. This year we went on our pumpkin picking field trip somewhere different than the years before; we went to a farm in our county called Cornucopia.
We were split into groups with the other kindergarten classes from our school and we went through different stations. The first station we went to was the animal station. We learned a lot about the farm animals they have at Cornucopia, and we even got to bottle feed a calf! My heart melted. So. Stinkin'. CUTE!
The next station we went to was the pumpkin learning station. We went inside a barn, sat on hay bales, learned all about the life cycle of a pumpkin, and got to see many different types of pumpkins. I even learned a few things like there are pink and blue pumpkins. Who knew?! We ended by getting to look at some of the bees they have at the farm they use for pollination.
Our third station was to do the long awaited PUMPKIN PICKING! We hopped on the hayride and rode over to the pumpkin field to find our perfect, small pumpkin.
We ended our day with a little free play in the hay maze, slides, and corn kernel pit.
Now that I have shared with you one of my favorite things to do in the fall with my Kinders, I'd like to share with you a freebie and a sale on my fall related products in my TPT store!
The freebie I am offering to all of you blog hoppers is this short and sweet pumpkin quantity discrimination activity. Students decide which pumpkin has the bigger number on each card and records their answer on their recording sheet. Perfect for a quick assessment, review for a RTI group, or practice for kindergarteners just learning the concept. Click the picture below to download this freebie.
I have a handful of great fall activities in my TPT store that I have marked down to just $1 until the end of the blog hop on the 27th, so go grab them while you can. Click any of the pictures below to go directly to that product.
