Apples Tot School Unit featuring Apples, Apples Tot Pack

Sharing is caring!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons for several reasons. One being all of the pumpkin flavored everything and another being the changing leaves.

Another reason I love Fall has to do with living in Albany. We’re close to several apple orchards and love taking the time to visit them to go pick apples. And whether it’s for eating them right away or for baking, we always have apples on hand.

This year, I wanted to expand a little bit on that by creating a apple themed tot school unit for Squeaker.

The unit is really a mini-unit and the activities can be spread out over a few days or done in one day. In addition to the activities in the tot pack, I would suggest the following:

Here’s what we did from the tot pack.

First, we talked about the apple life cycle.

This is when visiting an apple orchard really comes in handy. You can talk to your child about the apples that are growing on the trees and how they started from a tiny seed.

Next, I had Squeaker color in one of the apples. We talked about how apples can be red, green, or yellow.

Then, I helped her with an apple puzzle

And finally, we used our Attribute Apples from Learning Resources with the apple counting activity

I will more than likely have Squeaker help me with a baking project as well. That way we can get the full apple experience.

Other things that we’ll add on for next year, are reading a few apple books:

 How Do Apples Grow? Apples Apples for Everyone (Picture the Seasons) Johnny Appleseed (Ready-to-Reads) Ten Apples Up On Top! How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World (Dragonfly Books) The Seasons of Arnold’s Apple Tree Max & Mo Go Apple Picking Amelia Bedelia’s First Apple Pie The Apple Pie Tree Apples, Apples Everywhere!: Learning About Apple Harvests (Autumn) An Apple Pie for Dinner Ten Red Apples The Apple Tree’s Discovery

&

I’ll also use that opportunity to talk about Johnny Appleseed as I think Squeaker will be a little bit more interested in that next year. But we’ll see what happens!

All in all, we had a lot of fun with this unit. If you’d like to try some of the activities with your toddler or preschooler, please download the pack!

We absolutely love Fall but this fun apple themed tot school unit can be enjoyed all year round!
