Now that it’s officially fall, we gotta have a unit on the season! This week I have a Fall lesson plan for preschool at home prepared for you all!
I used to think that spring was my favorite season. Don’t get me wrong; I do really love spring. But there’s something about fall–the crisp cool air, and also the anticipation of the holiday season, that really makes it a special time.

Fall Lesson Plan for Preschool
Without further ado, let’s jump right into it! Input your info to download the lesson plan. This week we are using some worksheet printables from other sources, so keep scrolling so you can get the links for those!
Day 1: Fall Photo Walk, Painting With Fall Collection
Fall Photo Walk!
Go on a fall photo walk! The leaves are just starting to change color here, so it’s starting to really look like fall around here.
Take a camera or your smart phone along with you and let your child take photos of whatever catches their eye.
We got this kid’s camera for my 3.5 year-old last year, and he loves it. There are some games on it, but it also does take real photos. Honestly, not the best quality photos, but it does take pictures! We’ll be taking this one on our walk.
Painting With Nature
On the walk, collect some leaves, acorns, twigs, etc. We will be painting with these! I saw this activity on Instagram @craftingwiththeclarks and I think it’ll be a lot of fun!
Fall Math Worksheets
I found this set of free worksheets from Alleah Maree on Teachers Pay Teachers. We will be doing the last two activities that are in the bundle: Fall Fox Number Order and Roll, Add, and Cover.
I think these two activities will be a great way to review Counting Numbers 1-10 Unit that we did a couple weeks ago.
Today, we will be doing the Fox Number Order.
I think songs are such a great way to learn and remember things!
I used to play this song for my first graders back when I was teaching full-time. Brings back lots of memories 🙂
I will play this song, and maybe have a little dance party with my boys haha
Day 3: Fall Wreath
I saw this activity on The Mad House and wanted to try it out! It’s a paper plate wreath with faux fall leaves.
I haven’t decided if I want to use real leaves or faux leaves. But either way, I think it’ll turn out really pretty!
Acorn Dice Activity
This is the second activity we’ll be doing from Alleah Maree on Teachers Pay Teachers. It’s the Acorn Dice Activity “Roll, Add, and Cover”.
Letter B Worksheet
Day 5: Fall Tree Painting
I found this Q-Tip Fall Tree Painting on Mess for Less and thought it was really fun! All you need it some brown construction paper for the tree trunk and branches, and then some paint for the fall leaves. You could use Q-tips, but I thought finger painting the leaves could also be fun.
This week’s Bible verse is Joshua 1:9. It’s one of my favorite Bible verses! In fact, it was the verse we used for our 3 year-old’s dedication.
The printable is included in the lesson plan download. It’s been really helpful having it taped up next to my son’s bed so we can say it at bedtime every evening.

Words of Encouragement
I just wanted to say to whoever needs to hear this today…
You are doing a great job, Mama! Homeschooling may not always be super easy, but the effort and love you are pouring into your children right now is making a huge impact on their lives! Keep up the great work!
