There's nothing like an apple pie you grow yourself!
As a young girl and her family watch the apple tree, they also watch a family of robins grow. The seasons change, and finally the apples are ready for the pie.
This unit is crammed full of activities to support the book. It includes:
Before reading inference using the cover as a prompt
After reading discussion prompt cards
Sensory poem writing activity
Story sequencing - the tree
Story sequencing - baking a pie
Story sequencing - the Robin family
Four seasons of an apple tree - posters to collage
Teacher answer keys where applicable
I hope these activities make planning much easier and much more fun for you. If you have any questions or comment, please feel free to contact me through my blog www.sos-supply.blogspot.co.uk
"This packet looks really, really great. Lots of meaningful activities that can easily be incorporated in anyone's classroom. Not a lot of preparation or colored ink needed to complete the activities. Susanne, I think you did an amazing job! I read this book every year. It's one of my favs! Thanks again for sharing it with me!"
"What a great unit! Lots of skills addressed, fantastic graphics and well organized. I liked the phoneme section. Loved the syllable section and using senses to describe apples and turn that into poetry. Loved the set-up for pre-reading. Loved the speech bubbles as group discussion starters. LOVED the sequencing part. Collage art at the end is fantastic."
