Look at this SAD pathetic face! It's the same ol' story every time my husband leaves for work trips.
I, on the other hand, am SO excited because I am on TRACKOUT!!! Three weeks of fall vacation bliss!!! We had three days this week and I wanted to keep my friends BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!
So I filled their three days with all things apple. It was educational and rigorous of course.
Many of the apple activities I use I got from A Cupcake for the Teacher YEARS ago.
An oldie but a goodie.
The crafts always turn out so precious...
And she has some really good activities where you can collect and graph data. This is a concept that we BARELY touch at the end of the year so I try to make sure I incorporate it as much as possible throughout the year.
Wild About Firsties.
Some of my friends had never tasted apple cider!!! Oh the horror!! This was something I felt I should expose them to!
So we did a little taste test and graphed the results. Educational. Check. Fun. Check.
These were some of the graphs I did myself.
We also made homemade applesauce! We watched a few videos of kids making homemade applesauce (on YouTube) and then I started the process.
Oh man did it turn out delicious!
*Please excuse the bottom of my chart...the laminating machine...that is all...
These were just SOME of the activities that I packed into three days! I kept all their materials gathered and stapled in a little book. Then they just pulled out their book when we got to the next activity.FREE HERE.
Get ready friends - October is HERE!
