Applesauce Adventure

The children created a delicious applesauce from start to finish, in honor of John Chapman (a.k.a. Johnny Appleseed).  Of course, we topped it off with a little whipped cream and a graham cracker to give it the apple pie a la mode taste!

Morning Tubs

This year I decided to try something new with our morning routine.  Instead of paper/pencil tasks when the students arrive, the children can choose a "Morning Tub" to work on independently or the students can work with a partner.  The children are engaged with the activity as well as each other.  "Morning Tubs" promote socialization, provide choice (there are twenty tubs to choose from), encourage collaborative learning, and provide an opportunity for play as well as communicate with one another.

Below is a slideshow of the students engaged in their "Morning Tub" routine.
