Where do apples come from? What different
colors are apples? Do you like red,
yellow, or green apples the
best? Which apples are sweet? Which apples are tart?
During circle give
children a chance to taste a red, yellow, and a green apple.
Ask which one is sour/bitter? Which one is their Favorite?
I also had caramel dip for the children to try with their apple they loved it..
Take a leaf walk outside and collect apple
leaves. If this is not possible, cut leaves from construction
place them around your room or building before taking the walk. Have
children find the leaves.
On Johnny Appleseed's birthday
have an applefest where all the
children wear "pot" hats on their head and later eat apple snacks.

refrigerator magnets make a fun favor for parents to take home after an open
Before open house, work one-on-one with each child to
assemble his/her magnet. To make one,
cut an apple shape from red craft
foam. Help the child cut out a green craft foam leaf and a brown
foam stem. Then direct the child to glue them onto the apple. When
the glue is dry,
use a paint pen to write: ________'s Work is good enough
attach a strong self-adhesive magnetic strip onto the back of the apple.
Note Requesting Apple
Next week we will begin our study of apples. We need your help! Please
send an apple to school
with your child on Monday. Feel free to send any size,
type, and color of apple you can find. We
welcome home grown and store-bought
apples. Variety will help make this activity more exciting!!
(An extra apple
would be helpful for children who are absent or who forget) During the week we
comparing the apples, writing and reading about apples, and we will end
our study in a very delicious way!
Thanks for all your help!

You turn the
apple upside-down, with the stem side up. You take two small
bites at the top and one in the middle and then one bigger at the. The
really excited when they see the face! Then we set them on the table and
them smile at us. We then compare their faces and vote if we want to eat
or not. Most of the time they want to eat them and give each
other instructions on how to make the face on the back.
