Today, during circle time out on the playground, we read The Apple Countdown. For our first small group, we picked apples off the apple tree, and used the letters on them to spell our names. For our second small group, we used cinnamon sticks as pencils and wrote the letter "E e" in applesauce. For our final and large group, we got to try different colored apples, and then we used a chart to see which one was voted most popular! We had a fantastic Friday.

We used tongs to bob the apples out of a tub of water, and compared if it was easier to get real apples out or the fake squishy ones! For our second small group, we matched letters on apples to their correspond letter on the apple tree. For our final small group, we made patterns or finished patterns that included different colored apples. We had a great day!

Today, we celebrated the birthdays of a teacher and CLC kiddo! During circle time, we read Amazing Apples. For our first small group, we compared and counted pictures of apples, then whichever had more got pinned with a clothespin. For our second small group, we did a volcano apple experiment! We put baking soda and vinegar in the center of apples, and we watched them erupt while discussing if the color of the apple made the eruption any different. For our final and large group, we cut out strips of red, green, and yellow paper to glue onto paper plates to make our own apples. We had a wonderful Wednesday.
