Thursday was Johnny Appleseed Day! So, of course we HAD to make applesauce. What's Johnny Appleseed Day without the smell of cinnamon apples cooking in the classroom?
The kids mixin' up the ingredients!
The apples are finally done! This is when the fun really started...smashing the apples:). I think I may have earned the "cool teacher" award with this:).
Time to taste our cookin'
We continued drafting our opinion papers this week and finished up our final drafts today. I think this is the most writing my kiddos have done so far! They worked so hard all week. Despite the moans and groans about second drafts....they did it:)! "What, we have to write it ALLLL over again???"
The final copies came out awesome!
Whheeeww....ok, that was a lot of apple activities:). We are done with apples. Not to worry...we'll be moving on to pumpkins and leaves and scarecrows next week. Everything fall!
