We will use the slate boards, magnet pieces, and our handwriting books this week!
SS/Science Theme: Apples. Our theme this week and next week is “Apples”. If you could send in apples next week, we would like to make applesauce on Thursday and have an apple tasting day NEXT WEEK Friday. I have not even told the children about this yet, because next week is easily confused with this week! We would like a large variety of apples. Please send at least 2 apples by Thursday next week if possible!
We will be making charts and graphs of the kinds of apples, comparing them, talking about the parts of an apple, talking about labeling and diagrams in association with apples. We will also do some great “apple art!” Of course we will also learn about Johnny Appleseed during the week!

Pathways: zigzag,straight, curve, random, hula hoop maze
