This past week, we have been learning about apples. I always start off the unit with a poem. This was the poem for this week. After we read it together, they place it in their poetry books and illustrate the poem.
We also read many different books about apples. We created Anchor Charts to go with what we learned.
(We used this chart to help us with one of our centers.)
We read "Johnny Appleseed" by Steven Kellogg and charted some of the things that we learned onto this circle map.
Here are some of my students working hard filling out their graphic organizers on Johnny Appleseed as I modeled charting it for them.
We also worked on sensory words or adjectives for apples. I had my students tell me adjectives for apples and I wrote them on sentence strips which they glued to a big apple chart I made.
We then worked on writing sentences about apples using some of the adjectives from the chart.
That's it for now folks. I am off to take my daughter to Disney On Ice. I'll be back later with the rest of my Apples Unit.
