This week our theme was “apples” in language arts. We read two books. The first was “Ten Red Apples” by Pat Hutchins and an informational book about apples. We chose and learned about key vocabulary words from the text such as: dribble, rotten, bud, seed, bloom. We discussed what an informational book is and what a narrative book is and how they are different. We introduced the “table of contents” and looked at the parts of an informational book and read it out of order! The students were shocked lol! Then, on Friday, we used our creativity and sense of touch and sight to explore apples that were cut into slices. With forks, we stuck them into the apples and stamped our own apple trees! It was SOOOOO much fun 🙂 Next week, we will increase the rigor of this activity by writing to the prompt, “I can see __________ red/green apples in/by the tree.” In addition, we will use bingo dabbers to dot out the amount of apples on a ten frame! Come on by and check them out! we are oh so proud of our work today! Here are some pictures we snapped of our budding artists this afternoon during the project. enjoy!
