Autumn Activities + Free Printable!

I'm going to be completely honest with you, I do not remember the last time I was this excited about a printable for you.  I made this over the summer & I've just been dying to share it with you! We're in September, and fall is right around the corner, it is go time!!!! You can use this single, small printable, to teach so many subjects at various stages of cognitive development.Autumn Activities- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
I am a big fan of having one activity that can be used to teach multiple objectives. It’s a big perk, if that activity will grow with my child & I can use it at multiple stages of cognitive development. And if it is seasonally exciting, well then I. Am. Sold. This is one of those activities, and I have it for you today FREE!  There are SO many ways that you can use this as a learning tool with your kiddos.  There is minimal prep for 15 different activities!DSC_0214
First get the FREE download, print, laminate, & cut. You can use this activity for learning the alphabet, matching uppercase and lowercase letter, sorting, counting .... and so so so so much more.  Let me give you some ideas!
Alphabet. Ask your child to recognize the letters & put them in alphabetical order.
Magnetic Pick-Up. Attach a paper clip to each autumn image, & using a magnetic wand pick up specific letters (all vowels or consonants, spelling sight words, or call out a phonetic sound & ask your child to find the letters that make that sound).
Matching. Practice pairing uppercase & lowercase letters.
Sort & Count. Group all of the similar autumn images together, and then talk about the different types of leaves & mushrooms. Count all of the red, yellow, and green leaves, then add them all together.DSC_0224
Memory. Flip the cards over, and play memory by matching the uppercase & lowercase letters or by matching the autumn images.
Handwriting. Using a dry erase marker, practice letter recognition & tracing each lettersDSC_0223
Spelling. Using the log cross-section, ask your child to collect letters to spell words (sight words, CVC words, their name). If your child is not ready for spelling, using a dry erase marker, write out a word on the log and ask your child to match what you wrote with the autumn letters.DSC_0227
