We have been very busy this week with one of our favorite unit on Apples.
Every body found out how many apple tall they were. We taped cut out apples onto our large building blocks and the children stacked them in order from 1 to 10. Next they stood next to the stack of blocks and asked a friend to help them see how many apples they were. Next they sat down at a table and glued apples to a sheet to show how many they were.
Children worked on building their fine motor skills with pinch and cover activities. Children pinched pop poms with cloths pins and placed each pom pom on a work mat. They couldn't wait to go to the peel and stick table after finishing their pinching activity. Children took their time to peel and stick stickers on dots to create a colorful apple tree.
We learned about the letter A with a fun color collage activity that turned into an apple when completed.
The children strung sparkly beads, painted corks, painted bottle capes, silk leaves and wood beads to make a child created apple tree.
We completed a apple counting activity to meet our DRDP assessments that are due in October.
Now lets see what we will be up to next week
September 28th to October 3rd
The children will be work on another week of apples to complete our unit of study. Here's what we will be working on...
