A is For Apple

We've had a great time today with our Apple unit study!

The Life & Times Of The Apple
was a great resource for my 9 and 12 year old.

An Apple A Day (over 20 apple projects for kids) by Jennifer Story Gillis also had some great ideas. We tried the apple star prints on pg.33 although the stars weren't as easy to make out as we would have liked. We had fun painting and trying anyway :) I hope to try making the apple wreath and homemade applesauce soon.

As the children "painted" I read aloud The Song Of The Apple Blossom Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker and Johnny Appleseed by Madeline Olsen.

Buck's (age 4) Apple Print

Honeybee's (age 3) "Abstract" Apple Painting :)

The House Cat's Notebook Page

The Snuggle Bug's Notebook page

(maybe next time we'll put the tape on the back :)

Here's a link for a fun apple word search for the older ones:

And a connect the dots apple for the younger ones:

Hopefully Buck and Honeybee will complete some of the activites soon.
