Toddler Playschool: L is for Leaves Lesson Plan {free printable}

Pin It
Fall is my favorite season.  So when those leaves start changing my brain starts turning with things that we can do to make the most of the season. I know we're going to have a ton of fun celebrating this season in our Toddler Playschool.   Many of the activities listed in this free Letter L lesson plan printable incorporate real leaves from outside. Just going out and collecting them can be a learning experience in itself!
 
  
This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.

Songs and Fingerplays
5 Little Leaves Sitting in a Tree
Five little leaves on the tree next door
One fell off and there were four
Four little leaves swaying on the tree
One fell off and there were three
Three little leaves until the wind blew
One fell off and there were two
Two little leaves sitting in the sun
One fell out and there was one
One little leaf swinging all alone
He fell off and then there were none
No little leaves on the tree next door
Time to rake and rake some more

Create a page for the alphabet book. Each page is blank except for the week's letter. Children can be provided with an open-ended activity to decorate the page of their book.  Or you can use the suggested activities to set up an activity to create the page. Once done, pages can be laminated and bound with spiral binding or rings. You can find a template for this book here.
