Wonderful Wednesday...Apple Day!

This is Mr. Carrier's last day before he gets married on Saturday!
 We made him a wedding card that you see in the picture.
The k kids wrote it...
"Mr. Carrier, Good luck on your wedding day. We will miss you. Will you dance? Will your  mom be there? Love, Kindergarten"
Too Funny!!!!!

We had a blast with our apple theme today!

 Mr. Riebel helped us out!!!!

 What a hard working bunch!

 The silly apple pass game....
 no hands...
 lots of giggles....
 Mrs.Gnadt  made it back for the rest of the morning

Books we've read this week:

 cry a  little...when Grandma/pa
said goodbye!
The Apple Pie Tree                           Johnny Appleseed
We graphed our apples two different ways:
by color                and                   by size    

 We also began making our apple treats:
Dried apples smell sooooo sweet!
Since they take a couple of days we started them today.
Applesauce is on the menu for Thursday!

I LOVE cooking with Kindergarteners!

Here are a few of our "Which Doesn't Belong?" bags...
Well done, Kiddos!

Harvest Home!

September 26-30 in Kindergarten:
BIG NEWS: Apple Orchard field trip on Friday!

Twenty parents are going with us...WOW!  We will go rain or shine so help your child to dress for the weather.
Many kiddos signed up for cold lunch that day....please remember to send those yummy lunches as we were not able to order extra school lunches.

*******Funny Quote from last week*********
Kiddo, excited to go outside, reviewing safety guidelines volunteered "No running on the woodchucks!"
Me trying not to laugh: "We probably shouldn't run on the WOODCHIPS either..." 
"OH, Woodchips...I was wondering where those little guys were!"

Reading/Language Arts: Letters Ii, Jj, Kk, and Ll  plus rhyming!
Math: numerals and one/one correspondence to 10
Theme: APPLES...the life cycle of an apple tree is highlighted as well as apple graphing, counting, sorting.
We will make APPLESAUCE!   MMMMMM!!!
