There are so many amazing apple books to engage your learners in an apple unit.  One of my favorite books to read to my class is perfect for engaging background knowledge while introducing the seasons of an apple tree.

The Apple Pie Tree

Using books that help teach multiple concepts is just smart teaching.  That is why The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall is just perfect for little learners during an apple unit.

This book is a great way to get learners thinking about their experiences with apples or gardening.  Engage prior knowledge with questions during reading by asking learners to share similar experiences.

Seasons of My Apple Tree

An apple unit is a great way to introduce the seasons of the year to learners.  In September the weather is changing and soon summer will be fall.

After reading this book create an anchor chart of the seasons with your learners.  Have learners add the seasons of my tree page to this science notebook, too!

Apple Emergent Reader

This reader is perfect for your learners to create after reading The Apple Pie Tree.  An apple shaped book that reviews the seasons with learners is just perfect.
