I have combined 3 weeks of themes on this post. We use teddy bears to learn about our 5 senses and labeling. Each child brings a teddy bear from home and we use them for math and science.
This is one of our math stations. They drop double sided counters on the table and record the amount of each color. It is showing different ways of making 5. They also record which color has more and which has fewer.
Apples: We learned all about apples. We learned the life cycle and seasons of the apple tree. We painted trees, made apple trees and talked about everything we could do with apples. The last thing we did to finish up our week was make apple pies. Normally we make homemade crusts, but this year we used canned biscuits as the crust. I liked it soooooo much better. We had counted and chopped apples to cook in the crock pot all day. We added milk, cinnamon, and sugar. That is what we used in our pies. Here's some sweet pics before we made our pies and during the process.
