aPPLe FuN {Tuesday Tried It Style}

In preparation for our field trip to the local fruit ranch, we have been learning all about apples.
What a fun adventure this has been.

We have been reading all about apples...

And doing trying all sorts of apple inspired activities from some pretty fabulous bloggers...

 Apple Labeling
This great idea is from Growing Kinders and Jessica Williams

Johnny Appleseed
Make sure you check out A Cupcake for the Teacher and Jessica Williams Apple Week Activities. They've got some really cute Johnny Appleseed ideas.

Our Apple Tree Seasons were inspired by The Teacher's Cauldron

Apple People also inspired by Jessica Williams

Tomorrow is our fieldtrip!!!
So excited to take our firsties on this fun farm adventure!
A lot of our students don't get the experiences that most of us take for granted.
Since I work in a low income school, we are only given a very limited budget for field trips.
Our budget wasn't large enough to cover the expenses of the entry fee and the 2 buses needed.
Even with a little wheeling and dealing, we still came up short.
Well, that wasn't going to stop my super fab team!
We are each contributing to cover the cost of a second bus.
Can't wait to see the excitement in our firsties eyes!

I've linked up with Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried it Tuesday.
 Make sure you head over to Holly's blog to see what other bloggers have been up to.
