MFW Unit 4: Apples

Mercedes' theme for My Father's World Kindergarten last week was apples. The Bible lesson was "If I stay in Jesus I will have much fruit" and the fruits of the Spirit. On the first day of this unit, we went to the apple orchard to pick apples.

When we got home, Mercedes sorted the apples by color with a giant apple graph. We counted the apples and wrote the numbers on each colored piece of paper.

Throughout the week we made apple cider smoothies.

Apple crumble bars (I use this peach crumble bar recipe and substitute the peaches for apples).

I made a little apple family with a daddy, mommy and baby.

We had to make OUR family then by adding another bigger baby (for Emerald and Mercedes) and adding a Grandpa Bruce.

We cut apples both horizontally and vertically and did apple stamping.

We cut a thin piece in the middle of an apple and hung it to dry for a Christmas ornament. 

The letter of the week was A so Mercedes practiced drawing upper and lowercase A's in applesauce.

And we made an apple tree with all the fruits of the Spirit and discussed what each one means and how we can show our fruit to others in our every day life.
