Apple Week - Days 4 and 5

I'm a little late with this post...things got busy at the end of the week! We had so much fun finishing up our apple unit and celebrating Friday with our apple treats!
We used beads and a fuzzy sticks to help us decompose 5 again using our 5 Red Apples song...the kids loved it!

Our recording page (we do lots of hands on and modeling and we always do these activities whole group, so the kids are decomposing numbers as soon as possible instead of waiting until later in the has really made a difference in their number sense!)

We went a different route Friday and worked on a little beginning subtraction with the song (crossing an apple out each time it fell from the tree)
You can get both of the math sheets and the small trees for the sticks here (for free!!). :)

We read The Apple Pie Tree and learned about what apple trees look like in different seasons...definitely a hard concept when it's fall and 90 degrees outside!

Mashing and mixing our applesauce

Yummy apple treats {applesauce, apple juice, apple pie}

I don't know if this video will work, but it's my kiddos singing Happy Birthday to Johnny Appleseed...they insisted we do it before we ate our apple treats. I seriously have the funniest, cutest class ever!

Also, in case you haven't seen it, Herding Kats in Kindergarten is having an awesome giveaway...hurry over to enter!

Happy Saturday everyone!
