Not to wish the summer away, but there’s something about autumn that makes us count down to it. Now the autumn is nearly here, I thought you might enjoy a list of fun and free fall printables for preschoolers just for the upcoming season, like this Celebrate Fall graphing game for preschoolers.
Fall means colors in beautiful earth tones and contrasting hues of yellow and red, and lots and lots of exploration with natural materials. It’s easily my favorite season, and my favorite theme to teach. There is something spectacular about teaching in the fall because autumn awakens the five senses. So many fall activities require the use of multiple senses, making it especially appropriate for preschoolers.
Now, I’ve joined some of the best kid bloggers to bring you a ton of new fall activities and fall printables. You can find them all at the end of this post, so be sure to take a look.
Fall Graphing Game for Preschoolers
In anticipation for our fall theme, I created this simple graphing game for my preschoolers and tested it out with my three and four-year old kiddies. (It’s a FREE printable you can download at the end of this post!) It’s very similar to our It’s a Zoo graphing game. (That one is a free printable, too!) So this was also a huge success as well!
Aside from a color printer, some cardstock, and your favorite laminator, all you need is the following:
- game piece for each player
- 0-5 or 0-3 dice (depending on skill). I like using these blank dice and filling in my own numbers.
- small yellow or orange buttons or pebbles
Set-Up and Prep Work
Just print, laminate, and cut.
Select a player to go first. Roll the dice and move your game piece the corresponding number. Identify the image on the game board and place a button on the graph in the corresponding space. Play continues until the first player reaches the end of the game path.
Play continues until the first player reaches the end of the game path. Once the game has ended, the children use the graph to identify which images got what quantity of buttons.
This game is a really easy way to reinforce basic graphing skills. It’s also a great transition activity from question-of-the-day activities and also pairs nicely with my other graphing activities for preschoolers. And, it pairs nicely with some of the fall activities in this mega pack!
Even my three-year-old enjoyed playing the game. In particular, he loved finding the matching pictures, and it was also a great way to teach him new vocabulary words about fall. He was so very particular in placing the buttons in exactly the right places. That’s something he has learned from my friend Jamie’s Engagement Activity Plans for three-year-olds.
Don’t forget you can download a copy of the game at the end of this post.
