Apple Fun and a little Pete the Cat!

Hello!
I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday! Yay!


We had such a fun couple of weeks with our Apple theme! Here are a few highlights!

1.  We discussed the seasons of an apple tree and painted these murals! I love them!


2.  We made apple pies from biscuit dough, apple pie filling, and cinnamon sugar. We had a few parents take the pies to our kitchen to bake which was WONDERFUL! Hurray for parents!



3.  I made small balls from newspaper and masking tape and the kiddos used paper mache glue to create an apple. When they are dry, we will add a stem and a foam leaf.




4.  My husband and my son brought our cider press to school and we made homemade apple cider! Yum!



5.  These kiddos are practicing matching different letter fonts by moving game pieces around the board.


 See the game pieces? I slipped them between binder clips and they work PERFECTLY for moving around the game board!

 6.  We discussed how an apple gets from the orchard to the market and then the kiddos made a map of its journey.


Many of these apple ideas can be found in my Apple Lets Make a Book pack as well as Four Fabulous Apple Literacy Centers.



Finally,  here are a few pictures of Pete the Cat that the kiddos made last week....









Now.... hop on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching for more Five for Friday fun!


Until next time!

Blessings,
Cindy

  2. I'm very jealous that you have an apple press and can make apple cider WITH your kids! So Cool! And I LOVE the cats! You can tell they cut them out, making them all unique. It's perfect!

    1. I am lucky to have a husband willing to haul it from the farm to school! It was a fun experience!

      My kiddos LOVE Pete the Cat! They are always "reading" it during Read to Self/Partner! What a wonderful book!

      Thanks for sharing!
