An Enchanted Autumn Forest: Unit Three of The Small Folk Learning Series

An Enchanted Autumn Forest: Unit Three of The Small Folk Learning Series


Experience the magic of the season as we prepare to say goodbye to autumn and welcome winter.  This unit focuses on the changes around us as the earth prepares for winter, with a particular emphasis on trees and the forest. It builds on “Golden Days” and “Farm and Feast,” the previous units in the series. The three of them together make up the fall portion of the curriculum. Some themes for this unit include trees, leaves changing color, the mystery and magic of the forest, forest animals, day and night, and hibernation and migration, highlighting the rhythm and balance of nature. Several early learning concepts are integrated into the activities, including counting and number sets, patterns, shapes, colors, print awareness, simple form drawing, rhymes, and the sound of the letters r, c, and g. Because this is a three-year curriculum, you may approach these concepts very differently depending on the age and development of your child.


What is Included in This Set 

Along with the teacher’s guide, the following items are included; Fairy Tales for Small Folk Part Three: Late Autumn, part Three of Simple Stories for Small Folk (A Collection of Songs, Short Stories and Verses for Nursery and Kindergarten), and The Printables, Props, and Playthings Pack for this unit. Each of these components and how to use them are described in more detail in the welcome letter.

  • What People Are Saying

    I love these guides! I’m excited to dive in with my littles. They see the bigs doing “lessons” so giving them some structure and gentle learning opportunities is great! I also love that what you have here is outside of my personal toolbox, so it’s extra special and interesting for the littles.
