This week, we celebrated all things apples...
Coming back from the weekend, we started our Monday with a new apple cinnamon sensory bin. And, yes, this set-up lasted approximately 30 seconds.
We made cinnamon scented playdough and then baked some pies.
We built the letter Aa with playdough...
wrote the letter Aa with chalk...
and, eventually, practiced the letter Aa with pencil and paper.
We also read the story, Ten Apples Up On Top...
and then counted to see how many we could stack up on top.
Actually, we counted a lot this week.
Cutting up a few apples, we learned about ABAB patterning as we stamped with apple halves.
Figuring out a balancing scale, we explored weight with apples of various sizes.
Afterwards, we reflected on our experience.
We also had fun with Miss Michelle when she asked the question, "Do apples float or sink?"
Conclusive evidence suggests that, no matter how big and heavy they are, they all float.
Finally, it was applesauce day. Using one of my favorite earthly possessions, we peeled the apples...
which was really funny...
when they looked like a slinky.
We stirred the apple slices with a couple shakes of cinnamon and let it simmer in the slow cooker for the rest of the morning.
Our classmade applesauce was super duper good!
We're a good batch of apples in this group!
