What Goes with Fall? Apples. And Apple Pies!

We’re in what should be the crisp, cool days of Fall.  Well, some of you are enjoying the cool.  I was recently in Boston and it was beautiful.  The leaves had turned, and the days were cool without being cold.  

But now I’m back in San Diego and it’s in the 80’s.  Is that crazy, or what?  Everyone knows you need cold snap nights to make good apples.  And who can resist a good apple pie?


There is a fun book by Marjorie Priceman called “How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World.”  It takes kids around the world to find all the best ingredients for an apple pie; giving them the chance to see where the produce, spices, and other ingredients come from (other than the grocery store, that is).
Best of all, for a speech-language pathologist, it offers some great opportunities for working on sequencing skills.
Just follow the link below and it will take you to the sequencing freebie:

I have a complete book companion resource in my TPT store, but am offering you 2 versions of a sequencing activity for free.  So, have your students sequence how to make an apple pie, and maybe even make one with or for them to try.

The full resource includes shared reading activities for a week,  and there are a variety of activities, including: sequencing before and after activities, making a shopping list, filling in a passport with countries and ingredients, matching countries with how you got there and what you got there and the order in which you got there, a map activity, sequencing pie making, and sequencing sentence strips to retell.  
There are also 46 vocabulary cards and picture matching cards for lots of vocabulary building fun.

Either way, have fun and enjoy a apple for me.



Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and……..Keep on Talking.

    2. I think making apple pie is a great activity on so many levels. Here in WA state, getting the apples is half the fun.

  4. I wish I was somewhere that still looked like Fall. I woke up this morning to 1 inch of snow.
