Non-Fiction Apple Unit. Then we made a life cycle craft from Ashley Reed's apple unit. As my kiddos finished, I had them take their iPad and read their mini-book and move their life cycle craft as they were reading. Because we are learning how to use the Seesaw app, I had them take a picture of their book and their life cycle craft showing the same part in the life cycle of an apple. Then, I asked them to label it using the pen. It was good practice for them to take pictures... Side note: I need to teach them how to be better photographers... *sigh* ...another day.
The Apple King by Francesca Bosca. We were going to vote and graph our results on how much we liked our applesauce but time ran away from us, so it didn't happen... but they all said they loved it!
freebie to make it with your kiddos, too! One of my kiddos looked at me during our play dough making craziness and said, "Mrs. Fretwell, this is the best day EVER!" Love.
|They LOVED smelling the apple pie spice!|
Once we finished making the play dough, I let my kids play around with it and practice making their spelling words while I cleaned up the mess. Thank the Lord for my precious parent volunteer who washed all of my plastic containers so I can reuse them for our next messy project.

On Friday we celebrated the end of the week with having a simple snack of apple juice and apple cider during our Fun Friday time. It was a really great week. It definitely took some planning on my part, but it was SO worth. The kids were so excited to come to school each day and hear what our next apple activity would be, so I'll call that a huge success!
I guess it's time to start planning Pumpkin Week...
