During the month of September, my kindergarten class is learning all about apples (in addition to our district adopted curriculum, of course). Each week we do various activities such as apple tasting (5 senses), apple graphs (math), the parts of an apple (science), apple writing, and apple art. We discuss apples so much around here in kindergarten that by the end, we have apples coming out of our ears! Not really, but you get what I'm saying, right? We believe in building community at VanderMolen so we love to get the parents involved as often as we can. We know that parents have busy lives with working and what not, so us Kinder teachers pick one day a month to invite the parents to celebrate all that we've learned for the month...this month being apples!
