A is for Apple Pie

We picked up another vowel this week. I just couldn't resist "A is for Apple Pie" because we picked cratefuls of apples just before it started snowing and apple pie was on my fall list of things to do. We had a very fun, but relaxed week combining Tot School and Preschool and made the best apple pie!

Bible:
(Sing the Word From A-Z)

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, that's the word of the Lord and it's written by Paul in Romans three, twenty three.

Books:

How to Make and Apple Pie and See the World, by Marjorie Priceman
The Apple Pie Tree, by Zoe Hall
The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree, by Gail Gibbons
That Apple is Mine! retold by Katya Arnold
The Amazing Apple Book, by Paulette Bourgeois

Activities:



This book was the highlight of our week! I made the crust, rolled it out with Mali's help, pressed it in the pie pan and had it ready for Mali and Elli to fill with apples.


After the crust was ready, we peeled, cored and sliced the apples with my Apple Mate. (I love that thing!)

Mali and Elli dipped the apples in the sugar, cinnamon and salt mixture and placed them in the pie pan.




Then, Mali and I added the lattice top. We forgot to add the butter slices, so we snuck them underneath the lattice top crust.



We ate it without icecream (just like in the book) and it was still the best apple pie I have eaten.

Apple Pie Scrapbook:

For Mali's scrapbook page, we printed the pictures and added a "mini apple a," letter Aa diecuts, and some apple and baking stickers.


Apple Lapbook:

We pulled out the apple lapbook that we made when we read Chicka Chicka 123, and did the apple file folder game and apple sequencing with Elli.


Mali did the Apple Pattern Strips and wanted to do the Apple Graph again, but was disappointed that he had glued the apples down. I told him he could still ask everyone what their favorite apple was and see if the results were the same. (They were).
