I feel like I haven't been on my blog in forever!! School is so busy right now and this past week I took a day off and spent a long weekend up in DC for a friend's bachelorette party! We had a blast!! Here we are after finishing 2 wine tours ;)
In class these past 2 weeks we have been learning all about apples! The students reviewed numbers one through six:
 They worked on beginning sounds (they really impressed me with this too! They completed it totally independently!)
 We completed another 'Just a lil dot' activity...
 I am not a glitter fan, but these turn out too cute!
 I found a new favorite center. The students hunted around the room for ten frames! So fun! The best part was overhearing them helping each other and using their vocabulary terms. I heard students saying, "I found the seedings!" It made me smile :)
 They also worked on some one-to-one correspondence (dice games are definitely a must with my group this year)...
All of the centers above can be found in my apple unit HERE
Tomorrow we are having Johnny Appleseed Day! I am having parents come in and help me run some centers. Our centers will be:

1. Happy Birthday Johnny Appleseed! coloring sheet from Peace, Love, and Learning that I found for free (download on TPT by clicking the image)
2. One Bad Apple Can Spoil the Bunch form Deanna Jump's Apple Unit
3. Johnny Appleseed Craftivity (from my Apple Unit)
4. Apple Measuring (from my unit as well)
5. and of course, we will be taste testing! I saw this fun picture on Pinterest and sent it to my room mom. So I am excited to see what yummy items she brings tomorrow for the kids (and me of course) ;)

Starting Monday we are going to be learning all about bats! I am super excited for this unit!! Happy (almost) Friday!!


  1. I love your glue dots apples!! I may have to try with my kiddos! what a great way to get the kids to practice using glue and build fine motor skills.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love Apple Week! :)

    We are starting our bat unit on Monday as well, though I am a bit nervous because I have never done one before. Will you be posting your unit on TPT?
