OOOO how I love this time of year. The leaves are starting to change, there is a crispness to the air, and the smell of apple cider is filling the house. So since it is September and the start of apple season, let's bring apples into our learning.
This is our first set up for exploring apples.
Little B's Kinder set-up this week consisted of several apple books, Ten Apples up on Top, Fruit Salad, and Apples by Gail Gibbons. I placed 2 different colored apples along with our Apple touch and feel flashcard and an Apple signing card out on the table(these are the cards that we use but I have heard these are very good too. Little B also got a lot of use out of his Fruit pie sorter this week.
A display that makes you want to play, that is the key.
Little B did a lot of patterns, great math using his fine motor skills.
These wonderful patterns I printed out from Imagine Our Life. They were a perfect addition to our week of learning.
We must have read Ten Apples up on Top at least 10 times, so of course we had to try balancing apples. Little B did a great job.
Okay so he's looking a little on the cookoo side in these two pics(above and below), but it's not easy getting perfect pics of a newly 5 year old signing. Hehe! Anyways, the awesome thing is he has learned how to sign a, b, c, and apple so far.
He is very proud of his last picture, it hangs on the refrigerator for everyone to see.
Applesauce Sensory Squish!!!
Next up an Apple Taste Test, can't wait.
We also found some great songs, and printable packs online that we have been enjoying too. So be sure to check out
