Fall is my favorite time of year!  Cooler weather, pretty colors, apples & pumpkins… I love it all!!  I’m going apple picking this Saturday with my hubby and another couple.  I can’t wait to bring home apple cider donuts!!!

Oh, and a bag full of apples, of course! 😉

To celebrate the start of fall this weekend {and Johnny Appleseed next week}, we began talking about apples in class today.  We learned about and labeled the parts of an apple:
My little ones did a GREAT job with this!!  Take a look:
Much better cutting than last week!
Lots of seeds on that one!
Here’s a view of all the apples, lining the hallway:
I love them!!

Since the projects are hanging outside, I created a little anchor chart for inside the classroom:
It’s up on my closet door.  Below it, we did a fact & opinion activity {don’t mind the glare!}:
Tomorrow and next week, we’ll be working on crafts and papers from my Johnny Appleseed unit.  I can’t wait to show you all the completed crafts!  Stay tuned!

The ideas in this post were inspired by activities from Growing Kinders and What the Teacher Wants.  Be sure to check out both sites for free printables and more ideas! 🙂
