Apple Pickin’ Time (A Kindergarten Unit) and a FREEBIE!

Hi everyone,

Sorry you didn’t hear from me much last week…..this is what I was doing:


We had last week off and spent the ENTIRE week going through our basement and getting stuff ready for a HUGE yard sale. This 14 foot truck was PACKED! I’m happy to say that by the end of the weekend the floor of the truck only had a few stray boxes. What concerns me though is that we’re supposed to fit the rest of our lives into a 20 foot container………ummmmmmm….I think we still have LOADS of work to do and only 11 weeks until our baby arrives!!!!

Anyway, this week we’re studying apples (one of my favorites). Although it’s not really meant to be our week to do apples, I decided to do it anyway. Here’s the pack I created for us to work on this week.

I also created this little freebie for all of you. Channing and I worked on it today. It’s a little counting book :-)


It includes number words and color words to trace. We used paint daubers to stamp the apples in the basket and added the stem and leaf when they were dry.
