At Thursday Storytime, we read stories about apples. Apple Trouble by Ragnhild Scamell was about a hedgehog who got an apple, and then other items, stuck to her spines and she couldn't fit in her new home. Ned's New Home by Kevin Tseng told about a worm who lived in an apple that was starting to rot. The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall shows an apple tree in all seasons as a family waits for the apples so they can make a pie. Our last book, Ten Apples Up On Top, is a funny book by Dr. Seuss about friends who can balance tall piles of apples on their heads!
We cut open an apple and were surprised to see the star inside made by the apple seeds! Then we collaged a big paper plate with all sorts of red materials - construction and tissue paper, ribbon, yarn, foam - to make the plate look like an apple. Some chose to put seeds in the middle of their apples. A twisty stem and a leaf finished the project. See?
