Apple Week pt2

Today was another busy and fun day in our class. Tuesdays are long days... I have NO specials (music, pe, etc.) so its me with the kiddos all day long. But this does give us lots of time for learning.

Today we had an apple taste test. We tried Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, and Red Delicious. The kids examined and tasted the three different kinds, then chose their favorite.

We graphed our favorites.

And we illustrated an apple picture. On the picture we glued real apple seeds from our apples. The kids loved it.

Lastly the kids wrote poems about apples using describing words and their five senses.

How cute! We are doing apples the week before Fall Break! Can't wait :) And I feel your pain on Tuesdays! No special for me either, although I like having the whole morning to do reading stuff, but it makes for a loooong afternoon!!! Love the idea of using real apple seeds! HUGS!
