Happy fall y'all! A dollar off for a limited time.

Here’s a quick, easy & super-fun apple craft that covers a variety of standards, while providing an interesting way for students to learn more about their classmates.

Completed projects make an outstanding display, as they swirl & twirl from the ceiling. You’re sure to get a ton of compliments as this apple craft has the “Wow!” factor.

I’ve included a variety of posters to not only enhance your display, but to help introduce the lesson, and teach older kiddos a bit about nouns & adjectives, as this lesson is easily diversified for a variety of grade levels, from kindergartners on up.

I love diddling around with a “play-on-words” so creating an “appealing” writing prompt with an apple “peel” craft was a lot of fun.

My kiddos are absolutely fascinated watching me demonstrate how to “follow the line, staying on the road” as I cut my spiral and the “peel” begins to dangle down.

Cutting out a spiral is a great way to strengthen those finger muscles, and evaluate your students “listening & following directions” skill too.

Grab that teachable SCIENCE moment, to reinforce the “parts of an apple” with the various pieces used to assemble the finished project.

Creating apples in red, yellow & green also practices the fact that an apple’s skin comes in more than one color too.

There are 4 different apple writing prompt options, as well as 2 “apple toppers” and 4 styles of paper patterns for students to write on.

Be sure and check the PREVIEW to see lots of samples.

Younger kiddos can simply jot down one thing they find “a-peeling” while older students can create a list to practice that writing standard.

Students can simply make up their own list, or you can read the "Tell me Ten" response worksheet.

Extend the lesson and have children draw a picture to illustrate their answer(s).

Patterns come in black & white, as well as full color, so that teachers can quickly and easily make an example to share. Be sure and make a personal one, so that students can learn more about their teacher too.

To save time, I’ve also included my completed patterns.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you an apple-icious time creating some very appealing apples.
