Apples, Apples, Apples

Here are some pictures from our Apple unit(Scroll down and keep going, since there is so much space between each one!)
Torn paper apples

We read some Johnny Appleseed books. The Steven Kellogg one is my favorite!

A Johnny Appleseed puppet for retelling, and three things they learned about Johnny. 1. He planted seeds, 2. He went West, and 3. He made lots of friends. ( I don't know the source of this sheet, sorry!)

We counted the stickers on the apples and recorded them here(below). This activity is from my{Fall Math and Science Centers}

Stained glass apples!  Below is a better picture of them. So pretty!

We took a class poll and wrote a report about our apples (The report is also from my { Fall Math and Science Centers}.)

We used a spinner to cover these pictures(from  my { Fall Math and Science Centers}):

It was an applicious time!

Throwback Thursday:Fall Bulletin Board

I have another fall idea to share, but I have to find the pictures on my laptop.  (...So it might be awhile...) In the meantime, here is a post that pops up as "top five" every week!

I love to make these every year! We are always doing something different with them. This year we added a "spelling" word on our sentence strip.

I'm linking up with Farley this month at  Yes believe it or not, before September 30th.

I watch tv by listening most of the time. :) We really DVR everything and then watch it while we multi-task.... I think I need to lose a few pounds before the wedding, and the salad goes nicely with my quest to eat more veggies. (But we won't talk about the ranch or the shredded cheese. And I need croutons too.)

Halloween is coming! LOVE it!

Michael's Drawers/Tower Organization...Upgrade?

Did anyone see these?
  Apparently we can have some options, rather than the 10 drawer tower storage cart!
I haven't seen these at our local Michael's yet, but I am going to keep looking!

Five for Friday


It's been going on for weeks, but I am finally linking up with  Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five For Friday Linky Party.

Here are some random things!
1. I gave all the kids their names, scrambled, and they had to cut them out and glue them on correctly. Then we counted all the letters and sorted them!
 2. Owls we made: Fine motor practice! Look at all that can be assessed with this simple project!
3. Number boards(aka anchor charts for numbers): I am obsessed with the simplicity of this. Why didn't I think of this? (Yes, I could make my own, but why? $3...woo hoo)   Go here to get  yours:

4.I just love this idea for the crib mattress! A lovely little reading nook! (and we have that book too!)
(picture from pinterest)
Save your crib mattress and make a little "reading" nook for your toddler :)
5. What a super idea! Found this {here}. Definitely going to have to try this with my groups!

Freebie on the 15th Linky Party

I haven't been online too much lately.  Fall is here and there is so much to do! I need to sort out the summer clothes for example(so the kids don't have to have a marathon try-on session every morning with pants that are too short...why do I think that I am not the only one this happens to?) and about 999 other seasonal things(halloween is coming! costumes! decorations! ....).
But I wanted to share a freebie, and I found this yesterday: 
Lucky to Be in First is having a Linky Party with Freebies!
I'm going to link up to a simple freebie of mine that can be used for K or 1st:
