This time of year is definitely my favorite….APPLE theme time! I think it goes without saying that I love apples!! One of the only ways I’ll actually eat an apple though is with Jif whipped chocolate peanut butter. I know, it’s ironic!
This past week we started learning all about apples. On Friday, we celebrated Johnny Appleseed’s birthday by having a full day of apple activities and apple snacks.
To start our apple journey, I read a couple non-fiction books and then we did a whole group tree map graphic organizer. After our whole group discussion, I had my students fill out their own graphic organizers. I’m really proud of what my students are able to accomplish this early in the year!
These organizers come from my Fall Tree Map Graphic Organizers pack, a differentiated pack of organizers and matching writing pages for the best season of all…fall!
Activity 2: Silly Hats for Ten Apples Up on Top
Activity 3: Sorting Mats with Apple Jacks
End of the day snack: “Homemade” Applesauce and Apple Cider
