I love fall. A LOT. And Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. My mama’s dressing was the stuff dreams are made of! So I get very enthusiastic about this perfectly-temped time of year and all the potential it holds. I also endeavor to include as much seasonal change as possible in the rhythm of our homeschool year, especially with my preschoolers. Since my boys are almost 2 and just now 3, they’re still very much absorbing the natural cycles of the year and learning what a season is. My older girls love fall just as much as I do and enjoy to break free from the everyday grind into different content on occasion.
All of this inspired a Thanksgiving + Fall Unit Study that I wanted to serve my whole family, especially my preschoolers. The entire unit study includes the following items:
Nature-Inspired Scavenger Hunts (3 separate hunts, with and without words)
Literature Selections for Preschool through High School (4 levels)
Beginning Letter Sounds
Fine Motor Skills (lacing cards + scissor skills)
Copywork (Print + Cursive)
Poetry Copywork (or Memorization)
While the FULL 64-page unit study is not free (PSSST, IT IS ON SALE!), I am sharing a HUGE 24 Page Sample with you completely for free! Whether you use the big sample or decide to get the full unit, I think you will be blessed with joyful memories and fun times this November!
