APPLE unit Fun!

In our APPLE unit, we made trees,

learned and printed the parts of a apple: seed, flesh, skin, core, stem, leaf...

"apple stamped" some in green and red paint for our baskets,

cut a core in half for our Science experiment! We saw the APPLE STAR and the 5 seeds!

We made "torn apple" art in Art class and tasted red, green and yellow apple slices! Our classes' favorite? GREEN!

We tasted APPLE foods/drink. Pie, slices with caramel, sauce and juice. Our favorite?  Caramel and slices!!!

Cheers to you!

We even made "apple pies" at our sensory table at center time!

Next week, we celebrate Johnny Appleseed's birthday!

2. a Daily 5 "IPad" center, (this month we practice our letters in "Writing Wizard"),

3. our "Listening Center" (after listening to a new book each week, we print words from our book until Daily 5 time is over!),

4. "Reading in our Nook" by ourselves or with friends,

and 5.  our "Small Reading Group"! Our teacher reads to us and sometimes, parents do!!! Soon, we will read decodable readers in our groups and take them home to read to YOU!!!
