Homeschool Preschool: We finished our Johnny Appleseed Preschool Unit!

We finished our Johnny Appleseed Unit this week! We read several books from the library on Johnny Appleseed as well as apples in general, completed several apple themed lessons based on free apple preschool units from and, and on Friday, had fun with some apple-themed crafts! We'll also be making homemade applesauce this upcoming week sometime. Now, I need to decide if I want to do a Christopher Columbus unit next or just do a month of Fall-themed activities, since Fall is my favorite season. :)

Threading a "worm" through an apple (Pinterest Idea).

Almost done (great activity for hand-eye coordination practice)!
Anna's finished apple.

Got this idea from a book we read... cut out the core of an apple, then cut the core in half and used the star-seed shape in the middle as a pretty stamp!


This has nothing to do with our apple unit, but I thought it was a cute idea and Anna loved it... I cut out felt clothing items from leftover felt scraps from my homemade autumn yarn wreath and also I cut out a picture of Anna's NY grandma and grandpa from an out-dated photo calendar. She had a lot of fun playing "paper dolls."
Her grandpa, in winter gear. :)
