community helpers and apples!

We finished up our study on community helpers and apples. I just love these little community helpers by Julie Lee. We made little teachers, bakers, doctors, and firefighters. For shared reading we used the big book Miss Bindergarten Takes a Field Trip. Then I asked the kids what they want to be when they grow up.

We made mail bags and wrote letters. Then we pretended to be mail carriers and deliever mail to other students in the room. The poem says . . . See the mailman dressed in blue, will he bring a letter to you? He works when it rains, and when it snows, he even works when the wind blows.
We made doctor bags and glued inside a band-aid, cotton ball, tongue depressor, and a cotton swab.
We made applesauce and wrote the steps using shared writing.
They wrote their own how to make applesauce. Then we graphed our favorite apple product (apple juice or applesauce).
We described apples and wrote apple list poems.
We learned all about Johnny Appleseed and practiced nonfiction writing. This little Johnny and our circle map was inspired by Julie Lee.

We read The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons. Then we sequenced the life cycle of the apple and made this apple pocket to keep our pieces. The apple sequence pictures are from Cara Carroll.
We had a labeling mini lesson and labeled the parts of the apple. Chart inspiration by Cara Carroll!
I pulled out my picture cards I had from my five senses unit and used them to explore an apple.
