We are working on our apple unit! This is a song we sing each morning to the tune of BINGO. It goes:
There is a fruit I love to eat and apple is it's name oh
A  P  P  L  E
A  P  P  L E
A  P  P  L  E
and apple is it's name oh.

Then the first person turns the card around so that is says crunch so the next refrain is
crunch P P L E

and so on until it is
crunch  crunch  crunch  crunch  crunch

The kids love to sing this song.

We read the poem below using the voices that characterize the emotions in the poem and then we read it using silly voice like a monster or cheerleader. We will read it like we are underwater (by patting our hand over our mouth while we read it) or like we are on top of a mountain echoing. We will read it really fast and then really slow.

I was so surprised when we tasted our apples and most of the children liked the green apples! So today we had green apples with caramel dip. Yummy!
