Unit 5: Fall Into Fall

We are ending unit 5 this Friday. These past couple days we have learned about apples.  Also we are playing one-on-one learning games to prepare for report cards /parent-teacher conferences.

Last week we learned about the letter Yy.

 We practiced out fine motor skills by cutting on the ones and making pumpkin puzzle pieces to glue together.

Students used their creativity to create stain glass pumpkins. They look beautiful with the light shining through them.

Students illustrated how pumpkins grow, as well as putting the pictures in order.  We measured our pumpkins that we picked at the school pumpkin patch. We used unifix cubes, counting bears, and tiles to measure the circumference of our pumpkins. Also, students law what the insides of a pumpkin look like. They cut out a pumpkin, drew the pulp, and glued on real pumpkin seeds to create the inside of a pumpkin.

This week we learned about apples and what you can make using apples.  Students used their five senses to describe apples.  All students enjoyed tasting a slice of apple.
