On Johnny Appleseed's birthday, Miss Ash read the book pictured above to the students. Then we did a descriptive writing project about an apple. We webbed how the apple looked, smelled, tasted, felt, and sounded when we bit into it. Then did a cloze activity filling in the blanks with words from our web. After that, we tried two more kinds of apples and created a tally chart of our favorites. Granny Smith apples won with 15 votes! We also made a bar graph.
On Friday, we made Crockpot Applesauce. During homeroom, the children watched as the apples were peeled, cut and added to the crockpot. Then we added sugar, cinnamon, and a bit of water to the pot. We stirred the ingredients, then the apples simmered on medium for 4 hours.
Before we tasted our treat, the students and I did a shared writing of how to make applesauce. We wrote then illustrated our sentences. The students really enjoyed the applesauce as you can see...
Thanks for stopping by!
