It's Apple Time

It's that time of year when apples are ev-er-y where!  We did not get to do a unit on apples last year, so I had a year to dream up ways to make this unit fun & engaging in our home.  I shared this apple printable (free) with y'all back in August, but still had so much more left.  This unit did not disappoint......well except that I would do almost anything to have orchards in Texas to take our kids to for apple picking!  One day.....one day :-)  In case you plan on talking about apples with your kiddos, here are some ideas!Apple Unit- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
Here are some of the books that we focused on for this fun apple unit.  And while we've already moved onto the next unit, I have to admit that we are still reading these because they are just so good!
This unit allowed for objectives for so many content areas.  We spelled works with apples, counted, played apple bingo, talked about historical figures with apples, geography with apples, sorted colors, practiced fine motor skills, practiced handwriting, measuring, addition, patterns, made our own fun apple stand, some fun arts and crafts projects, learned the science and sequence on the life of an apple, practiced sight words, & of course baked an apple pie (which was actually my first ever apple pie!)DSC_0005DSC_0006DSC_0007DSC_0011DSC_0039DSC_0061DSC_0062DSC_0070DSC_0072DSC_0079DSC_0074DSC_0076DSC_0081DSC_0085DSC_0099DSC_0111DSC_0131DSC_0153DSC_0172DSC_0338DSC_0343DSC_0344DSC_0345IMG_20180904_074726_352IMG_20180904_152039_73320180906_164618
This truly was such a fun unit that we enjoyed so much that we lingered around the topic for a couple weeks after.  It was too much fun not to!
