This week's activity is...
Apple Tree Bulletin Board
Tree with branches and trunk
fall leaves made from construction paper and laminated
dessert size white paper plates
red and green construction paper
apple smile snack
Each year as we prepare for Curriculum night, our special education preschoolers prepare a special bulletin board for their parents. I bought a tree complete with trunk and branches for all seasons from a local teacher store, and fall leaves. The children made apples to go on the tree by either a) tearing red typing paper b)cutting red construction paper to glue on each paper plate. Then the children glued a leaf to the top. After we made our snack during cooking, Apple Smiles, we took pictures of the children holding up their Apple "smile". On each child's apple we put their picture on it, and hung them on the tree. Now each child knows which apple is his/hers by their picture and so does their parents! Above the tree, we put the letters "These are the apples of our eyes!" A big hit with everyone in the school!
