APPLES APPLES APPLES
This year I have incorporated a scholastic magazine to go with our themes. We get 2 a month per child, plus a big one for the teacher. This taught the kids the different stages of how an apple grows. The kids also learned a new apple song, the letter A, and read many apple books.
Teagan noticed a pattern and we all took turns counting the apples.
The magazine also has a worksheet on the back, it was about seeds and counting them.
So I bought a few apples for the kids. But by the end of the week they were bruised and broken. The kids rolled them on blocks, threw them like balls, cooked with them, drove around in the cars, painted, rolled the apples in the sand and water table with red paint, and a few kids tried to bite them. So needless to say by the end of the week we couldn't eat them and fill in our taste chart. O well we had fun while they lasted.
