Apple Week part 3

Today was the last day of our apple week.

We finished our unit by making applesauce.

I pre-cut and skinned 10 large apples at home last night.
Then when I got to school I added the rest of the ingredients.
1/2 cup of water
just about 1 cup of sugar
1 tsp of Cinnamon
And let it cook in the crock pot for 4 hours.

Our room smelled sooooo delicious!
And the kids had a great time!

Last the kids wrote the recipe for their families.
I'm excited but overwhelmed for this weekend:
1) We have fun things (Reagan's buddy is turning 3 and having a party and I'm going to a girls breakfast)
2) I have sooo much school stuff to work on!
Have a great weekend!!

Hi! I just found your blog through Babbling Abby and I just wanted to say that 1) your blog is adorable and 2) I'm loving the apples activities!! This is my second year teaching kindergarten and I really want to do a unit on apples but I feel like there isn't enough time to fit it all in!! Such fun activities, though....maybe I could "skip" writing for a few days and study/eat/write about apples instead??
