After out visit to Lattin's Cider Mill yesterday we had to have a good school day of apples. Holly enjoyed it so much and has asked to do the same with pumpkins in a few weeks... I'll be organizing that very soon. In the mean time today was filled a lot of apple fun - inspecting an apple, revisiting the parts of an apple, seed estimation, tasting various kinds and comparing, watching a video on the apple industry and orchards, discussing the health benefits of apples, reading a few books, apple stamping, sentence organizing and writing, an experiment and more!
With all of these projects on tap I had Holly work on a lapbook - a great way to keep all of her work. A lapbook seems to break up the daily grind of reading, writing & recording. She loves them and so do I. This is a pretty basic lapbook but one that Holly could do all by herself with little help from me... meaning she feels very proud when she is finished!
