We're working on our fall vocabulary. We've got pumpkins, acorns, apples, leaves, Halloween decorations, not to mention all the farm and cider mill words that we've been working on for some time. Everything (as always) is a language opportunity in our house, and we've been playing in the leaves outside, talking all about their texture, their color (well, lack there of...peak color doesn't hit us in DC until about Halloween), and even playing with our little pumpkins and gourds. It's been so much fun, especially now that the weather is cooler. Fall is my favorite season, and I love showing and teaching Christian all these new things. He's mastered pumpkin (UMPKEH), and says Trick-or-Treat (Treh OOOO TREE).
Leah has this AMAZING recipe and activity on her blog today for Mini-Candied Apples...what a great way language opportunity and a FUN activity. Not to mention, at 6 months pregnant, I will never turn down sweets!
