An apple a day

We have been working on an apple unit for science and social studies at school and today was our culminating activity day. We tasted red, yellow, and green apples, graphed our favorites, made apple headbands, and made apple sauce from scratch in the crock pot. The smell was heavenly and the kids were so excited. They were adorable. It's days like today that make me love being a Kindergarten teacher. 

I suppose I should have worn a combination of red, yellow, green, but I wound up in orange stripes instead. It was actually much warmer than I expected and I felt warm outside with the cardigan on, but thankfully my classroom AC is working again. I can't believe tomorrow is October 1st. I made it through the 1st month of school! I am feeling much more into my routine and my class is starting to settle down also. I'm  looking forward to crisper weather, leaves changing colors, pumpkin picking (and pumpkin coffee and muffins from Dunkin' Donuts) and all that good fall stuff! 

Cardigan: LOFT
Tank: Old Navy
Pants: Gap 


  1. Glad teaching's going well for you! I love that cardigan--so cute!

  2. Awwww My daughter did that stuff in kindergarten last year, also!!!! She had a BLAST making applesauce with her teacher!
