This week in preschool we began our study of the alphabet. We kicked off the alphabet with the letter “A.” More specifically we studied apples. We studied “A” is for Apples through art projects, songs, and sharing.
We found out that if you cut an apple in half, we could use it as a stamp to make pictures of apples! Be sure to check out the apple banners we made with real apple prints! We also discovered that apples come in three different colors…red, green, and yellow. Another fun project was using our fine motor skills to trace the shape of an apple and cut out five seeds to glue onto the apple. All apples have five seeds in the star pattern.
Wednesdays are our show-and-tell days. The students brought some awesome things to share that began with the letter “A.” Some examples were an airplane, alligator, Andalusian horse, Aubry, apple, and a stuffed ape! We were impressed with the creativity!
Another exciting activity we did to reinforce the letter “A” was to make “Applesauce A’s.” We used our spoons to make the letter “A” in our applesauce. The class was excited to “play” with their food. The best part of the activity: it was a yummy and healthy treat!
