We have started learning about the seasons and apples in general. We have been focussing on the life cycle of an apple and the different products apples can be used for.
My co-worker has an uncle who owns local apple orchard, so we were fortunate enough to get a few boxes of apples to use for are unit.
I bought one of those apple, paler, clicker, corers and Bed Bath and Beyond. It was $19.99- then $5.00 off with a coupon.
I was a little skeptical, but that thing worked great. The handle was easy for the kids to turn and they loved seeing the giant spaghetti like peel.
We are learning the poems and creating the life cycle book from my All About Apples Pack.
The apple prints were, fun, but MESSY!!!
I hope to share some more pictures later in the week. I also started parent/teacher conferences today. I love getting to meet the parents and learning more about each of my students and their families. I learn a lot of important information at these early conferences and the parents learn all about the "NEW" kindergarten- which is really just the "OLD" first grade.
Have a great week!!!
