Hey, TBR fans! It's Lisa from Always an Adventure in Kindergarten . . .
It's FALL!! This is definitely my favorite time of year. I love football and sweaters and boots and pumpkins and doing an apple theme with my kinder kiddos!!
Next week, we will be doing a lot of apple activities in my classroom. Friday will be apple day and we will rotate through various stations to make an apple craft, do some apple taste testing, and, of course, make applesauce!
I thought I'd devote this post to sharing with you my favorite apple read alouds and activities. And if you stick around, there just might be a FREEBIE at the end!
I love Gail Gibbons for non-fiction with kindergarteners. They love her books!
Here's another great non-fiction book.
I also love to read The Apple Pie Tree.
There are so many great apple units out there in Teachers Pay Teachers land. Here's the one I use and I think it's fabulous!
It's by Vickie at Mrs. Plant's Press and it is so thorough. Literacy Centers, Math Centers and writing activities. It's just exactly what my kiddos need at this point in the year. You can find it in her TpT Store HERE. She's actually using it in her classroom right now so you can head over to her blog and see it in action!
And here's the promised FREEBIE! We are working on patterns right now so I created this for a math center. Just print and laminate the different colored apple cards and let the kids make their own patterns. There's also a recording sheet so they can color their pattern, too!

And, on a totally non-apple related note--
