Welcome to "Enrichment Friday!"
I mailed all the children apple welcome postcards, and they were asked to return them in exchange for a goodie bag!
We're ready to learn!
I peeled these apples so the kids wouldn't know what variety of apple they were eating...Gala apples were the winner!
Mmmm...caramel apples ready to eat!
What a fun afternoon we enjoyed today! I had 5 little girls for our enrichment class and it was loads of fun! We had fun during the apple taste test, with "Gala Apples" winning for favorite flavor! The kids made tastey caramel apples with fall sprinkles, and they tasted so good fresh from the oven! The kids worked on their "I Need A Friend" books, did some graphing activities, writing work, and were thrilled when I called outside time, "recess!" Things got a little wild at one point, so I think next time I will shorten the free play time. Just like in the classroom, things need to keep moving at all times for everyone's full attention! hee hee I sure miss teaching, and when a few kids had tears in their eyes when I read, The Giving Tree aloud, I knew they were hooked! Next session's theme: pumpkins! We'll measure, weigh, sort, decorate, and do a host of learning activities with mini pumpkins and a Halloween theme. The fun thing about doing a little class at home, is that we can do as many crafts as we like, and tie it all in with a learning theme! Want to come next time?!? :-)
