Children's House Weekly Newsletter

Mrs. McLean, Mrs. Arleo, & Ms. Sasha

This week our focus will be on Apples. The children will have the opportunity to taste apples and other fruits to decide which is their favorite. We will compare and contrast the fruits by examining the similar qualities, such as shape and texture and noting the differences, such as color and taste. We will read a fun story about a little green worm who is trying to find a home. This story provides the opportunity for the children to compare apples to different fruits. Number/counting concepts will be reinforced throughout the week. Before cutting open the apples, we will try to guess the number of seeds inside. This week's books include Ten Apples up on Top and The Apple Pie Tree.
