I can't talk about apples without that song popping into my head!
with the boots with the fur...
We've been studying apples and everything-that-you-can-do-with apples the past week in my class. It's been a blast!
In Science we've been learning about properties and taking a lot of observations- just like scientists do. I brought in real-life apples to the classroom and we observed while thinking about our five senses. Tomorrow we're going to sort the cards into properties (color, texture, mass, etc.) and lead into heating and cooling with some cooking on Friday!
In ELAR this morning we taste- tested yellow, green, and red apples and made sentences using our sight words. We read Amelia Bedelia's First Apple Pie last week and a lot of my kids have developed a love for Granny Smith!
I couldn't just leave Math out of the fun.. we've reallllllly been working hard on decomposing 1-5 and we are FINALLY getting it!!! **and the crowd goes wild!**
And my kids went nuts-o over this game today! They spin the spinner, count the apples and place that many linking cubes on the five frame. Nothing like simple, right?!
I should be back with some more apple fun at the end of this week! Hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!
