I asked our families to please send in one apple this week, and we made two graphs about it; which day they brought the apple to school...
...and what color apple they brought.
On Friday, we made our applesauce. I called the children to work on it one or two at a time, and of course we started (and ended) with washing our hands.
You can really see the concentration and determination on their faces as they worked on this new skill.
I did the cooking, then served up warm, fresh, cinnamon applesauce for the kiddos for snack.
