Apple Stamping

Last week we had so much fun with apples, more fun than I think I realized! We read loads of books about apples, made small books about apples, did some apple stamping, and made applesauce. Wow. The kiddos really like making their own tree branches using apples and paint. I thought that their creations turned out beautiful and all of them were so unique. I had 4 tables and at each table there was a different color. It all worked out so well and I hope that you enjoyed seeing your child's artwork.

Here are some photos of us doing some apple stamping!

October 15th-October 19th

It is a short week, we do not have school on Friday. Also, our "Classroom Night" is this Thursday! Halloween is also coming up and that means a fall party, plus the Fall Festival. The fall party will be in our classroom and I would love to have some parent volunteers. If you cannot help, I am asking for healthy snacks, utensils, plates, napkins, and drinks. Please let me know if you can help in any way.

October is a month full of activities and events in and out of the classroom. Last week we started our apple unit and a BIG thanks to everyone who sent apples! On Friday we had an amazing time having a taste test. I first cut up 3 different kinds of apples and then I didn't tell them which bowl had which kind of apple. The kiddos each got a clipboard and then went to each bowl and had a taste. After they had a taste from each bowl, they chose which bowl they liked the best. Then we graphed the results and they were just so excited about what we found. Turns out, 7 people like bowl 3 the best and that was the green apple. Coming in second was bowl 1, the yellow apple. Last was bowl number 2, the red apple.

This week we are going to make something really yummy with all those apples! We will also do some apple stamping on Thursday. They will also be putting the apple cycle in order and making a book to go with it.
