Apple, Turtles and Surveys!

We had a very busy week this week! We started off the week by tasting and graphing our favorite type of apples. We tasted Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples. Most of the kids in both classes liked the Pink Lady apples the best. We also took a survey of different adults in the building and most people liked red and green apples the best. With our graphing and surveying, we got to practice "most" and "least" and were able to determine which apples are the most popular.

In the afternoon class, we had two surprise visitors with our Family of the Week! Two turtles came to visit and we got to see them and learn about them.

We all practiced patterning this week. This is a great and easy skill to practice at home. You can make all kinds of patterns! If you are eating dinner, you can pattern: carrot, green bean, corn, carrot, green bean corn, carrot, green bean corn. Or in the car you can pattern sounds: clap, snap, clap, snap, clap, snap.

Don't forget to spend some time as a family this weekend working on your take home packs. You have them until Wednesday and there are some fun and educational activities that your family will enjoy!

Check out the slideshow below to see the fun we had this week!
