We’ve spent the better part of two weeks studying apples.
We made apple mobiles. We made apple puppets. We tasted three kinds of apples, graphed our favorites, did a survey and played an apple game.
We’ve read Ten Apples Up on Top; The Apple Pie Book; How Do Apples Grow?; Apples, Apples, Apples; Amelia Bedelia’s First Apple Pie; Apples; It’s Apple Picking Time; I Am An Apple and Up, Up, Up, It’s Apple Picking Time. Just to name a FEW.
Today we finished the unit by making a pie in one of our centers. The children rolled the dough; peeled the APPLES; helped slice the APPLES; mixed the APPLES and filled the pie shell with APPLES.
I walked over to C., looked him in the eye and asked, “C! What kind of pie did you make today?”
He swallowed his apple, looked at me with a smile and shouted,
Yep. My job is done.
