All About Apples {Linky Party}


I am so excited that it is almost fall! I love all the seasons for their very own special reasons, but fall is my definitely my favorite! I love the colors, the smells, the cool crisp air, the clothes, the decorations, the pumpkin patch field trip, bonfires, raking leaves, chili, s'mores and everything else that makes fall so wonderful!


Apples Pinterest Board
Next week we will begin a two-week unit on apples and Johnny Appleseed. I have been searching for lots of new ideas to add to some of the ideas I've used in the past. I hope that you will like some of these links, too. I’m just wishing I had more time!
I haven’t linked to everything apple, just mainly what I think I might like to use.

Be sure to checkout the following link to search for great free/inexpensive downloadable apple printables from Scholastic.  Use code: 10THANKS for $10 worth of ebooks/printables. Expires 9/20/11

        Mrs. Magee, I'm so excited! Thank you so much! :) How fun!

        S. Parker, feel free to link up to your product. Great idea! The more resources, the merrier! :) If you have a separate link to your blog, too, feel free to post several entries. That way it makes it easier for people to find everything.
