Tweezing little apples (Walmart home decorating section), pin punching apple (abcteach freebie), apple pie and apple halves cutting strips, spooning salt
J-jo is determined to cut. Loves practicing this. Our scissors just cracked one day as we he was squeezing them shut to cut and we were devastated, but Timberdoodle was great and sent us a new pair immediately.
Labeling parts of an apple. The fraction game I posted here is also on this shelf.
Labeling parts of the chicken. Found via Homeschool Share. Bear really wanted parts of a cow too, ("what about the cow?") but I couldn't find one with blanks and really wasn't up to the work of creating one.
It's a very colorful chicken.
Not apple pie related, but we did do All About Spelling this week too.
Fraction game in use.
Fraction puzzles (I took out the sets that went with the book - pie, apple, and eggs).
I brought out the parts of the tree and parts of a flower puzzle to tie in with the life cycle cards from Montessori from Everyone.
We made a paper plate pie.
You need two plates. Paint one a pie crust yellowish brown color. Let dry. Cut slits in the "crust" and glue a piece of red paper under the slits. Staple or glue to a plain white plate for the pie tin. (Or you could paint that plate too.)
Serve up your delicious pie wearing an apple print dress:)
J-jo always looks to Bear to see what to do:)
We still have many apple activities to do. We actually had to return the library book and so we didn't do all the FIAR activities in the guide this week. I have the book on hold and will do those (like salt evaporation and a few others) once we have the book back. We read it multiple times each day while on vacation and it is still a favorite so perhaps I should just buy it.
We'll be going to an apple farm this weekend and baking our real pie after that.
printables we never got to
apple play dough
apple part labeling and apple stained glass
(we haven't gotten to the stained glass yet either...the week just isn't long enough!)
sequencing cards for the story
Delightful Learning's fantastic row of this book.
