Apple Fun {FREE CRAFT}

Oh, Hello teacher friends. Do you remember me?
Long time no blog.
This past month has been crazy with back to school. This year I am working with Kindergarten and First grade. 
It has been hard.
Did I mention I am 18 weeks pregnant?
With our first boy.
Life is good.

I had to break my blogging silence to talk about one of my favorite things.
. I love teaching apples because that means it is basically fall. I LOVE Fall!!! The air is cooler and just smells fresher.
We made these adorable tear paper apples with the apple life cycle on the back. They look so nice hanging from the ceiling.

{Yes, I  fixed the falling Christmas lights after I took this picture!}
If you have never made tear paper projects, be prepared to tear some paper yourself and it will still take FOREVER. We spent about 3 days on these, working 30-40 minutes a day.

We first read a book about the apple life cycle As we were making them, I realized the tree should NOT have apples. I corrected it. You can get the template FREE HERE.

  1. Great post! I enjoyed reading and seeing your ideas. My class completed the apple life cycle sequence Friday afternoon while they waited for our crockpot applesauce to finish cooking. What a great project! They were enthralled that they HAD to tear paper to complete the project. Thanks so much!
