Students talked about the parts of the apple and labeled the parts of an apple on a giant apple we have posted in the room. Students also graphed their favorite colored apples and discussed the results of the graph. This teaches math skills as well as decision making.
On Wednesday, students helped make apple sauce by helping to peel the apples and add the ingredients to the crock pot. They then watched it cook all day. Thursday we ate our homemade applesauce for snack. It was delicious! We also discussed what will happen at the apple orchard on our field trip that is next week.
The letter of the week was Cc. We learned the sign language for a letter, the literacy link sound symbols, the letter sound, and looking at and writing it in both capital letters and lower case letters. Click here to view the many ways we learn the letter of the week!
Each week we watch letter videos from "Have Fun Teaching" and the students are really picking up the names of letters, formations, and the sounds of letters. Check out these videos with you child! Click HERE.
The Tuesday project of letter of the week is to decorate a letter with something that starts with the letter. This week we decorated the letter C with Cotton Clouds. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, C is for cat.
