### My Ode to The Inspired Apple and More Stuff

It’s such a lovely Saturday afternoon here in the Ham (Birmingham). I love this time of year!
This week I stumbled upon Mrs. Mullins (The Inspired Apple) post on Apple activities and I LOVED them…especially the apple sorting activity. We were also working on short o this week and her brilliant idea turned out to be a wonderful Friday activity for us. Thanks Mrs. Mullins for sharing all your wonderful ideas! So here are a few pics of our week.

We also graphed our favorite color apples.

And we completed an Apple Sentence activity. The students cut and created apples and put sentences together about their favorite color apple and how apples taste or how they like to eat their apples.

Math Stations:
Here’s a look at this weeks stations. Most of my activities came from Made for First Grade. I love the activities they create!
