Ten Apples Up on Top

Published in 1961, Ten Apples Up on Top!  is a classic children's counting book.  Our TTh class started the week listening to the story and then we had our first craft using scissors.

Each child was given a piece of red paper with a circle shape.  We showed them how to the hold the scissors and each child attempted to cut the circle.  Please do not worry if you child's apple is not cut correctly. We send crafts home 'as is'. This activity is a first scissor experience for many of the children.  We will be using scissors in many many crafts throughout the school year and scissors are always available in our art center for the children to use.

After cutting the circle, we added a stem and leaf to finish our apple.
