My goals for our apple theme were for E to learn:
- Apples grow in trees.
- They can be red, yellow, or green.
- The names of some products we make from apples: apple pie, apple sauce, apple crisp, apple juice, apple cider.
- The properties of apples: how they taste, smell, feel, sound, look.
We started off at the apple orchard to pick apples then we journaled about our trip.
We read apple themed fiction and non-fiction books. After reading Ten Apples Up On Top, E drew a self portrait with apples on her head!
We read Scholastic magazines about apples.
E practiced a lot of real life cooking skills by making apple cheddar biscuits and apple crisp with Nana and Gramps. Please notice the sticker on Gramp's head.
We sorted apples that I made out of foam by color. I also introduced patterns with these.
We did lots of pretend play with making apple pies.
We made apple print artwork with friends.
We made apple pie scented play dough in red and green.
We made an apple tree with her hands and feet.
