This is a fun project that combines seasonal vocabulary with play dough that hardens into wonderful smelling crafts!
For this week's language component I photographed each step and will have students sequence the cards while either naming vocabulary words or using a sentence to describe each step. For students working on advanced language, you could also present them with the cards and materials and ask them to collaborate and cooperate in order to 'figure out' how to complete the project as a group, as independently as possible
I did not include measurements on the cards as it depends on how large your group is and how much you want to make. I've looked at this recipe on a few sites and the basic recipe seems to be approximately one part applesauce to one part cinnamon, perhaps with a little more cinnamon than applesauce. So, if you use a quarter cup of applesauce, use a heaping quarter cup of cinnamon. (And remember, the dollar store carries cinnamon, so you can buy a couple of large bottles for two dollars! The project in the photo took less than one large can.) You can also add a dollop of glue for extra sturdiness.
Once the dough is mixed, you can roll it into mini 'apples' to use on the apple counting template included; roll it into big apples with a straw or pipe cleaner as a stem; or cut it into shapes with a knife or cookie cutter. Let them dry for at least 24 hours and you have a sweet smelling craft or counting tool!
