September brings a lot of fun thematic units in the classroom. Apple units are so fun for Preschool, Pre-K and even Kindergarten classrooms. This time I year, I fill my room with apple activities, Apple Books and conduct apple science investigations!
Everything You Need
When I sat down to create my thematic units, I knew I wanted to help teachers cut their planning time in half. I know how precious time is to a teacher. I provide you with everything you need to have a successful and enjoyable unit every time. Add other supplemental activities to fill in gaps, and you have more time to do the things you enjoy!
My apple activities unit starts off with detailed lesson plans and instructions for each activity included.
I found the best, engaging apple themed books and included them in this unit. Each book includes a fun activity to complete independently, in small groups or as a whole class.
Introduce Apple Themed Words
Add these words to your word wall to add to your apple study.
Work on reading skill as a whole class or for small group instruction with my interactive apple poem. My interactive poems are a huge hit as it changes every time we read it!
Literacy and Math Centers
Of course, I have to include literacy and math centers to ALL of my thematic units. This provides students a chance to practice previous skills taught while you work with small groups. It’s a perfect way to meet all levels of learners!
You can purchase my All About Apples Thematic Unit below! This will help pull you away from work and enjoy the things you love the most!
