The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons is a wonderful story about a boy who interacts with his apple tree throughout the year. It is a great tool for teaching about seasons, apples, and story sequencing. These activities can be completed during or after reading the story. Use them whole group, for early finishers, or in centers.
