BUT, here we go! A day late and a dollar short, of course....
Those are all the goodies I made...and I made homemade apple butter...and we made applesauce in class!
We weighed apples....with nonstandard units (bear counters)
And with ounces and grams....it was a good way to see who could use strategies to add that many grams - we're talking 3 digit answers, here...lol.
They measure the heights of the different apples - using nonstandard units (cubes)
and measure how many inches high the apples were...
We did a little taste testing - with all kinds of apple yummies!!! They had their sticky notes ready to vote!
We made homemade applesauce, writing the steps of how to do it.
We graphed our favorite color of apple...and our favorite apple snack.
(I love my pocket chart graph! I got it from HERE)
We used my apple sticky notes that I save all year JUST for this week...lol.
We also drew and labeled our apples (directed drawing..they love doing it!)
Then we learned about seasons, and the cycle the apple tree goes through in each season, but we did it using a poem, which also helped us work on our fluency!! We circled the context clues in the stanzas that helped us visualize what the apple tree looked like (especially since none of my students have ever seen an apple tree....I mean, we live in FL)
After the paint dried, we made the poem into a foldable!

I hope you had a marvelous Monday!
