Apples

We learned all about apples this week with our read aloud titles: The Apple Orchard Riddle, Autumn is for Apples, Fall Apples Crisp and Juicy, and Apple Countdown.

We read apple poems, did an apple dot-to-dot, and did some other fun apple counting sheets.

We also watched this fun video about Johnny Appleseed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev4-8oPEnZY

APPLES
by Helen H. Moore

Apples, apples, what a treat,
sweet and tart and good to eat.
Apples green and apples red,
hang from branches overhead,
and when they ripen, down they drop,
so we can taste our apple crop.

Apples, Apples, and More Apples!

You may have heard that we made our own applesauce today in the crock pot. It was delicious. Everyone tried it, and all but two loved it! If you want to try the recipe it’s a simple one.

  • 12 apples cored and cut in chunks (We used Macs and left the skin on.)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tsp. of cinnamon

Cook in a crock pot on high for 4-5 hours. Stir once after a few hours. It tastes yummy while it’s warm. Enjoy!

Here’s a fun poem we read this week too:

Peel an Apple

 Peel an apple
cut it up,
and cook it in a pot.
When you taste it,
you will find,
it’s applesauce you’ve got!
