|We made applesauce on Tuesday for our tasting center today. I thought I had taken more pictures of our cooking, but this is the only one I had! I'm so upset! This class LOVES to cook!|

Today was such a fun day! We had Apple Centers where we tasted, weighed, and measured our apples. We also estimated how many seeds our apple had and then counted to see how many were actually inside our apple. We also did apple prints. You can tell be the pictures how much they loved our activities for the day!

We use the Scholastic literacy program at our school. Our theme for the month is Home. It works out really well because we incorporate it with All About Me and Our Family. Some of these are suggested activities from the curriculum, some I have added, and some have been tweaked. I posted many of the centers from the Scholastic curriculum already in an earlier post. (I probably should have labeled the earlier post, but I didn't think about it until now!) I'm also including some of the other activities that we've been doing this week!
|We finished up our creation book the first part of this week. They glued tissue squares on to wax paper to look like a church stained glass window.|
The last page, God rested.
|Love how cool these turned out!|
|Number two page. |

We are finishing up Our Family and Scholastic Home theme tomorrow. Some of the activities that I'm posting were actually completed last week, but I just didn't get them up! Some were started last week, but were finished today. I have really enjoyed teaching this theme! There is so much more that I wanted to do, but we are out of time!
|Our letter was last week was the letter H. We circled the letter H in our poem, practiced writing the letter H, read a H book, listed H words, and made our hen page for our Alphabet Scrapbook.|
|Our Buccaneer of the Week last week. She brought in Olivia to read as her favorite book. I just happened to have an Olivia for her to hold while I read the story to the class. :)|
|She stays with another teacher after school, but likes to come visit and play in the classroom after school. Pretty as a princess!|
|We read What Grandmas Can't Do and then listed all the things that Grandma can do. |
