A is for Apple

September 1, 2012

Can’t believe we’re starting to do fall units already.  This was always a favorite unit of mine when I taught in the public school system.  We always made home made applesauce and the kids had a lot of fun.  Now to downscale and find things appropriate for toddlers.
