We started our week with a bang and learned all about apples, apple orchards, life cycle of an apple and Johnny Appleseed!!
This book is always a favorite of mine. Gail Gibbons always fills her books with so much information! And the kids love it!

I loved doing this little activity; incorporating a writer's workshop lesson "labeling" and learning parts of an apple. Didn't they turn out so cute?!
We also had a little taste testing to fill in our graph of our favorite apple and of course any taste test is ALWAYS fun!
And after tasting of course we had to graph it!
We wrapped up the week with some Johnny Appleseed and these cute little apple collages!
I just love the way they turned out!
One of my friends asked me about my round head shots of my class to showcase their work and I must say it was super easy to do. I used Power Point to create them.
Here are a few easy steps.
Click "crop" and then "Mask to Shape".
I chose circle.
Then just make them the size you want.
I did two inch circles so I could use my trusty two inch punch to make it easier.
I'll probably add a black background next time so there won't be any white around the edges... but this works for now! :)
