Sequencing and Adjectives with Apples!

I am always looking for ways to bring in some cute crafts that focus on our weekly skills. Last week in reading we learned about sequencing. Since we use a basal in our district, we read the basal story to introduce our skill for the week and take a comprehension test on Wednesdays. That gives us Thursday and Friday to bring in other books for that skill and any cute crafts! On Thursday we made applesauce! We talked about how we were making it, the ingredients that we put in and we really focused on time words like first, next, then and last.

Apples-1 Apples-2

Afterwards, the kiddos ate up the deliciousness and created this apple craft writing the sequence of how we made the applesauce. You can find the craft here.

Apples-4Apples-6

We also created a graph on whether or not we like applesauce.

Apples-5

This week in language arts we are learning about adjectives. We started off with a quick Brain Pop Jr. video and then got down to business. Each table got an apple. They had to write down words on their plate that described their apple (we focused on 5 senses). Then of course they got to eat their apples!

Apples-3

Then they each got a few apples, wrote their adjectives on them and added them to our basket full of apples. My adorable team mate has the apple craft here.

I’m headed to pack the car for Houston. We head out tomorrow for check ups on our angel baby. Please pray for good results and safe travels.

Happy Tuesday!
