Our oatmeal, cinnamon and apple sensory bin

This week, we celebrated apples and the letter, "A"!

In my class, we first practiced printing Aa's.  We drew them in sand, in fingerpaint, and then eventually with pens and pencils.  With children ages 3 and 4, I focus less on the ability to print a recognizable letter and more of an emphasis on letter recognition and fine motor development.  Of course, every student is unique and I carefully assess their individual abilities to meet each of their needs.

Meanwhile, in Ms. Suzie's 2 and 3-year-old class, they're also learning to recognize the letter A.  As more of a sensory process art, they had a great time applying apple stickers on their letters.

A is for alligator  and apple!

Back in my class, we created our A-Alligators and a-apples.

For a fun science/art project, students in both classes created apple stamps.  Dipping apple halves into paint, they were able to observe the shape and seed "star" that the apple half left behind on the paper.

Ms. Suzie's class is hard at work!

This week we also made homemade applesauce.  This is a great project that I do every year with my students. 

We enjoy eating it, too!

We have fun in preschool!
