Autumn themed Sequencing 1-10 activity

My 3 year old really enjoyed this simple yet colorful sequencing activity using some decorative fall leaves. I used a permanent marker to write numbers 1-10 on the leaves and used some strips of card stock to present to him the numbers in order.

ABC Montessori song

When singing the ABC's I like to use a different song to help the child learn through phonetic sounds versus the name of the letter. For example if the child is doing a push pin activity on the letter "a" we could sing a song that says:
apple... apple... a ..a ..a ..(using the short a sound)
ant... ant... a.. a.. a ..

If presenting the letter b:
baby... baby... b.. b ..b..
book... book... b.. b.. b
