2. 玩樹葉配對遊戲 Play leaf matching game


We printed Crayola's Leaf Matching Game and colored and cut the leaves for the above song. You can also pick real fallen leaves and have your kids match them. Put them in a pile! Kids love playing with piles of leaves. When your kids jump in the leaf pile, you may also sing the Autumn Song (see below). 我們把Crayola的葉子配對遊戲塗上顏色,又剪出來,作為上面歌曲的道具。你也可以撿真的落葉,讓小孩配配看。把樹葉堆在一起!小孩喜歡在樹葉堆中玩~當小孩在葉堆中跳的時候,大家可以一起唱秋天歌(見下文)。


Younger kids find it easier to color with creamy crayons, washable paints, or dot markers. It takes patience and effort to color a large area with regular crayons, colored pencils, or markers. (I am filling up my own dot marker bottles with washable paints.) 水彩潤滑蠟筆、可清洗兒童顏料或點點畫筆,對小小孩來說會比較容易。用普通蠟筆、木顏色或水筆塗色需要耐心和努力,絕不簡單啊!(我是自己用顏料填點點畫筆瓶的。)




3. 在樹葉堆中跳呀跳!Jump in the leaves!

Kids love to jump. They love to jump in things like crunchy leaves or the leaves they cut out in Activity 2. You may sing the following song when jumping in leaves! 小孩喜歡跳。他們喜歡在脆脆的葉子中跳,或者在上面活動2剪出來的葉子中跳。大家在樹葉堆中跳的時候,可以唱下面這首歌啊!


英語兒歌:秋天歌

English Kid Song: Autumn Song

Lyrics 歌詞:

4. 玩尋寶遊戲 Play Scavenger Hunts

There are different kinds of celebrations during autumn. Read and talk about things you might see in a festival celebration or things you might see before you hike. This will help your kids remember the languages they are learning or have a better understanding of the things around them.




5. Play Simple Games 玩簡單的遊戲


There are other ways you may use with the scavenger hunt page. Cut out the grids to play Bingo or simple card games such as Memory. 尋寶遊戲又可以有其他用途。把格子裁剪出來就可以玩賓果或簡單的卡牌遊戲(如記憶遊戲)了!






6. 讀讀畫畫 Read and draw

I have come across Charles Reasoner's board book Pumpkin Shapes and love how he plays with simple shapes with faces of jack o'lantern. For Chinese practice, I have translated the book into Chinese for my students. We read the book together and drew faces together. Both my low elementary class and kindergarten class loved the activity! (Elementary students used the page with text while kindergarteners used the page without the text.) 我偶然發現了Charles Reasoner的Pumpkin Shapes這本書,十分欣賞他用簡單的形狀做出不同風格的南瓜燈臉。我把書翻譯成中文給我的中文學生練習中文,我們一起閱讀、一起玩臉,無論是初小生或是幼稚園班的小孩都非常喜歡這個活動!(小學生用的是文字頁,幼稚園生用的是只有南瓜、沒有文字的那一頁。)


To make the lanterns look lit up, I gave my students these paint marker pens to use. 我給學生這些筆,以畫出南瓜燈發光的效果。




7. 製作風箏 Make kites

Kite making does not sound like a language activity, but when you watch videos on how to make kites or speak Chinese when doing the activity, you will learn and practice some good language. 製作風箏看起來不像語文活動,但當大家看影片或用中文進行活動時,這些都是學習與練習中文的機會啊~


First, have children guess what materials can be used to make kites. Paper, book, ball, or leaf. Then, have them blow the objects and see what move. 首兒,讓小孩猜猜有什麼材料適合做風箏。紙張、書本、球,還是樹葉?然後,讓他們吹吹那些物品,看看哪些會動。


Finally, make a kite with a material they like! 最後,選一種喜愛的材料做風箏吧!

8. 製作秋葉畫 Make Fall Leaves Art

We love the colors of fall. This fall leaves art is easy. Just pick up leaves, paint and stamp. My daughter even glued real leaves onto the picture and added some textures. I love it! 我們喜歡秋天的色彩。這個秋葉畫非常簡單,撿葉子、塗顏色、印到畫紙上。女兒還把葉子貼在畫上,我們的畫變得有質感,我好喜歡呢!


Kids may like to work on large pieces of paper sometimes. 小孩有時候喜歡用大紙張創作啊。




9. 雕刻南瓜燈 Carve a pumpkin

Carve Chinese characters onto your pumpkin if you can! We did not because it was our first pumpkin. We only did something very simple (i.e., a cat face). 如果你會的話,可以在南瓜雕刻出中文字!我們第一之雕刻南瓜,只敢雕了一隻貓臉~


What can young kids do when we carve the pumpkin? See the next two activities. 我們雕刻南瓜的時候,小孩可以做什麼?請看下兩項活動。



10. 烤南瓜籽 Roast some pumpkin seeds

After you take out the strings and seeds from the pumpkin, have your children separate the seeds from the strings and wash them. Pat them dry and put in the oven. We baked ours at 400*F for about 18 minutes. But the time largely depends on how many seeds you have. Some people like to boil the seeds before they bake them, but we didn't. 把南瓜種子和囊絲取出後,可以給小孩把南瓜子和囊絲分開,然後洗淨。抹乾後放入烤箱。我們家400*F烤了18分鐘,不過南瓜子數目直接影響時間長短。有些人烤南瓜子前會煮一下,但我們家今次沒有。


11. 裝飾或畫南瓜 Decorate or Draw a pumpkin

Apart from preparing roasted pumpkin seeds, children can decorate pumpkins. In the picture below, Dear Daughter only painted her pumpkin, but she claimed she will continue to work on it later. Nice! 除了預備南瓜子,小孩還可以裝飾南瓜。圖中,女兒的南瓜只是上了色,不過她聲稱以後還會加點什麼東西,我隨她自由創作~~~
