Day two is all about that vocabulary! You will want to read the text cover to cover and stop when you get to the initiated vocabulary words. I prefer to teach the words in context and and that’s why I try not to skip pages on this second day!
bloom: Take two hands and make a blooming motion
ripe: reach up and grab an apple (because it’s ripe enough to eat)
thud: take one fist and slam it into your other hand making a loud noise
On day four you will be pairing any text you choose (hopefully you will bring in a fiction text!) Jada from Daisy Days For Learning chose to use 10 Apples Up on Top! How much fun are they having?
The kids will dip the apples down into the paint.
Also, here are a couple extra activities for your apple week! I also love to bring in apples of different colors and have the kiddos decide which they like to eat the best!
