Apples!

This week we learned all about apples.  We talked about how apples grow and what they can be used for once they are ripe and ready to be picked.  We made pretend apple pies to practice using our scissors. We used our fingerprints to put some apples on our heads.  The children tasted red, yellow and green apples and then we graphed which was our favorite. We also baked some delicious applesauce muffins for snack.  The children really enjoyed reading the recipe, measuring the ingredients, and mixing the batter. We sent the recipe home if you would like to try them out for yourself.  This week we enjoyed the books Apples for Everyone, The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall, and 10 Apples Up On Top by Dr. Seuss.  

In our writing lessons the children practiced holding a crayon the correct way by working in our writing books   In our math lessons we introduced the concept of alike and different. We worked on sorting objects by a common attribute, such as color or shape.  In our reading lessons we talked about the parts of a book. We also practiced lining up letters the correct way. We sang a song about inside and outside voices.   

On Friday we had our first PBIS celebration!  The children have been working hard to earn Todd Tickets.  The children used three tickets to attend a chalk drawing party.  Each month we will have a celebration to recognize their hard work.

Next week we will be talking about transportation - how we get from one place to another.  It is always a favorite topic in pre-k.
