We picked apples from the apple tree.
For some, we had to climb way up high on the ladder. Others we were able to reach from the ground.
We sampled them to make sure they were tasty :)
To the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", we sang as we climbed:Way up high in the apple tree
Two little apples looked down at me.
I shook that tree just as hard as I could.
Down came the apples and Mmmm, they were good.

We cut up some apples and made applesauce for lunch! We just left the peel on. We put them in a pot and added water, honey and cinnamon. When they were fork-tender, we put them in the blender.
We used some of our apples for printing. We painted apple halves with red, green and yellow paint and printed them on paper.
We read Ten Apples up on Top by Theo. LeSiegto the tune of "Three Little Monkeys":
Three little apples hanging in a tree
Teasing Mr. Squirmy Worm,
“You can’t eat me. You can’t eat me.”
Here comes Mr. Squirmy Worm as quiet as can be...
Two little... One little...
No little apples hanging in a tree.
But here comes Mr. Squirmy Worm
As fat as he can be!
In honor of "Mr. Squirmy Worm, we dipped pretend worms in paint and used them to paint on apple shapes.
Worms are quite the artists!
We read The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall
After they were peeled and cored, we cut the apples into little pieces.
We made a mixture of cinnamon and sugar in which to stir the apples.
We rolled out the dough and put the apples in the pan.
The apples were added to the pan and we dotted them with butter.
We added the top crust and then baked them in the oven and allowed it to cool.
We liked the process a lot more than we did the product!
It was a fun week, a productive week-
a delicious week!
