Last Monday, we started our morning by talking about & helping get the apples ready to make apple sauce. Students drew a picture of what the applesauce looked like before it started to cook. The class took two other checks during the day to see what happened to the apples as it cooked. Our room smelled so good! The class agreed. Almost everyone in the class loved the taste!
Tuesday is Johnny Appleseed day! We talked about Johnny Appleseed & what he did & made hats. The class all thought it was silly he wore a cooking pot on his head!
On Tuesday we also did the ‘Erupting Apples’ experiment. It is always a hit in class & definitely was again this year! They learned how to use pipettes, & made awesome observations of what they saw! To make the experiment extra exciting they got to choose a color to dye the vinegar.
On Wednesday we did “Sight Word Golf” to review all the sight words we have learned so far in class this year. This would also be an easy game to set up at home to practice with your child. The plastic golf club was found at the dollar tree and the plastic cups were from Target. (They are a heavier duty plastic cup). We will play this type of golf to review numbers, letters, and other concepts throughout the year. This makes learning so much fun! One way they played was if they hit it in the cup, they read the word and held onto the cup, making the game harder each round until all cups were gone. The other option was to leave all the cups out, and again reading the word if they hit the ball into the cup.
