I am going to post about all the red things we did separately, but we also talked about the different kinds of apples that we have. Mostly all the different colors. I had drawn a big apple on a piece of paper than put out scraps of yellow, red, and green paper to let the children rip and then glue to the apple. With both classes we were able to get it pretty covered, but there was lots of concentration going on there. I was glad many of the children tried it.
We finished the day by going out to the playground. I just had to share with you what fun we were having with all the fallen "helicopters" from the maple tree. Our playground has a HUGE maple tree in the center of it. Yesterday was really windy and all the "helicopters" were falling to the ground. We were collecting them and throwing them up so they would all spin at once. It was lots of fun and was really neat to look at. I wasn't quick enough to throw and get a picture, but believe me we had a good time.
