The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams is such a fun book to read together with your preschoolers in early fall.

Alphabet Games and Activities: Scarecrow Letter Patches
Time to get a little creative - with this Patch the Scarecrow Alphabet Activity.
If like me you are not great with drawing then grab a big roll of easel paper and ask your preschooler to lay on it and draw around them for the scarecrow shape. Then get creating him and patching his clothes with this alphabet activity.
One to One Correspondence Activity with Corn Kernels
As the scarecrow protects the corn fields we are going to do some counting with corn kernels.
Although your preschooler maybe able to count out loud the numbers 1 to 10 and know that they go in that order. The next step is to count out the number of objects and know that "Three" as a word is the same as 3 things counted out.
If your preschooler has mastered the counting out then why not try "and one more makes...." to get them started with addition.
