We also talked about varieties of apples, and did some apple math word problems for Maren and Joshua. We learned about Johnny Appleseed and watched the disney video. We made applesauce while we talked about solids, liquids, and gases and heat causing irreversible change. Maren wrote directions for making applesauce. For Christopher, we made necklaces out of Apple Jacks. The older kids estimated how many Apple Jacks were in their cup, and then counted to figure out how close they were, before they made their necklaces.
|Joshua put his apple jacks into groups of 10 to help him count|
The kids really look forward to theme days, so I think I'll use them as a reward for good school work. If they do a certain number of days of school work without complaining or throwing fits (hard to believe my kids do that, right? Ha!) then we'll do a fun theme day.
