Do you love book studies? I do! I love children's literature and I have so many favorites; this is one! I use this book to kick off the beginning of the school year and to start my September apple theme month.
I make a giant tree in the hallway outside my classroom and leave it up all year, adding different props for each season - colored leaves and apple cut outs for fall, bare branches with snow flakes for winter, my little ones cut out little white flowers to add for spring.
All of my book studies can be used for whole group activities and discussions, small guided groups as well as independent work station work. I keep the directions and vocabulary simple so first and second graders can complete the activities by themselves or with a partner.
Check out my other book studies. I hope you and your little ones enjoy!
