Apple Day {FREEBIES}

This week was apple week. If you follow me on instagram {follow me here}, you saw that I posted this picture...we were all apple this week!

Yesterday was Apple are some pics of the fun!
We started the day with a simple Apple Day coloring sheet.

This was the day's schedule.

We made Apple Crisp in the crockpot. The kids love to help cook and get so excited to taste their it makes the classroom smell AMAZING all day long!

We read this book. Amelia Bedelia is always entertaining!

Next, we read a little more about Johnny Appleseed!

We made Johnny Appleseed hats.

And a Johnny Appleseed craftivity! So cute!

After lunch we read this book, and explored apples using our five senses. {Sorry the picture is kinda blurry!!} 

 We tasted the apples last, then we created this Apple Graph...

This was the first time in 10 years that not a single person liked yellow apples...usually green is the least liked apple! 

One of my students' favorite games all week was Apple Picking time! This game is super simple to create, just draw a tree and add some "apples" {words on apple colored post-its}. The students find and color the word that was picked on their recording sheet. We had to play this game yesterday!

During math we used apple colored m&m's as apples on the trees to create math stories. We were working on the concepts of greater than and less than. The kids loved it...mostly because CANDY was involved, but hey WHATEVER works! :)

Finally at the end of the day, we had our apple taste test! 

The entire day was filled with fun learning! These activities came from these units...make sure to check out the FREEBIES!!! Happy rest of your weekend!
