We had a great week last week! You could say it was quite "Appeeling!!" Many of our learning opportunities had an fun apple twist. We were studying closed syllable short a words, with the word apple as a favorite. We practiced skip counting with apple shapes. We studied the citizenship of Johnny Appleseed. We studied force and motion using apples. On Friday, we made applesauce together! Here are a few pics.

Next we are working on magnets, and yes, I added a little apple twist to that as well.
PHEW!!! Oh! I almost forgot! I told you I would share some amazing writing my kids have been doing. But this week was also filled with assessments, I station, Spelling Inventory, Accelerated Math Inventory, Writing Portfolio BOY entry, and DRA's. I am hopeful that this coming week will be a bit more "normal" and I can grab some shots of their amazing work. I am very excited!!! Till then, thanks for stopping by for a peek!! We appreciate your interest in what we've been up to!! Don't forget to leave a comment!!
