Apples....

Continuing with our Apple teachings this week, we did a lot of apple activities!

Our Daily Prompts....funny answers to this question today!

Molly working on her numbers and coloring match ups.
Came from my Mailbox Magazine.

What we read today!  Cute book

 Zachary read to us all today!



Sammie got her own desk today (due to the fact she bothers
her brother all day otherwise
) she loved it! Homeschooling
all three this year is still a "work in progress"...


A little glue spill today....nice huh!



Snack time...got out our apple peele/corer from Pampered Chef











Girls working on their Clifford (Scholastic)




Little Apple Lego Action


Craft time!
(inspired from Walking By The Way - blog)







Love these containers...no mess and keeps the paints wet and ready for use each time!
We have 10 of them! They are from Discount School Supply on line $ 5.49 for a set of
5 of them!  http://www.discountschoolsupply.com



These turned out so cute. I think (don't tell the kids) that Sammie's was the best (and she is only 2)...Afterwards
the girls painted tons more pictures.

Love easy crafts!


My little own Apple Orchard!





Trip to the Farmer's Market this afternoon.  Hurricane Irene and the rain that followed for a week really hurt the farmers and their crops around our area. Almost all the herbs are gone and not coming back 8( and a lot of the lettuce was ruined. They were able to harvest a lot of the hard root veggies and some others. But it was sad to see.

We were able to find some corn today 3 for $ 1.00





bought some tomatoes that looked decent...love me some tomato sandwiches!


 Big find for the day - there was a used book sale from our local library going on...snagged 14 books for
$ 3.50!  Some great ones for the seasons coming up and Zachary found 6 chapter books he thought looked great!




Here is our song we learned today:

Johnny Appleseed 
(Sung to the tune of "On Top of Old Smokey")

He traveled on foot
Planting seeds.
People are thankful
For his mighty deeds.
Because now we have apples
On all of these trees.
And we are so happy
As well as the bees!


Check back tomorrow for a Wordless Wednesday and Thursday a Giveaway!

We did apples last week as part of learning "A" and because it fit so well into the time of year. You have some great activities. I love the apple peeling, the Lego apple, and the hand/arm print craft!
