Have you ever made applesauce? It’s one of our favorite things to do in the fall. This week for our Literacy Snack Applesauce Read Aloud we are reading Applesauce Day by Lisa Amstutz.
This is a fantastic book about a families tradition of making applesauce together each year. It takes you along through their entire day from picking the apples to making the applesauce and then heading home excited to do it all again next year.
So for our snack this week, we are of course having applesauce.
This is a great activity to do as part of your apple unit Our Cooking Class How To Make Applesauce. is a fun way to incorporate many different learning standards. In this pack, the students are learning writing, sequencing, retelling, life skills, and much more. It’s a great hands-on activity to get the students excited to learn.
Reading Applesauce Day and then making applesauce as a class in the crockpot would make for a fantastic hands-on activity. I give you all of the details of how to do that here.
But if you don’t have enough time, use store-bought applesauce for the snack. You can buy it already in the individual cups or buy a few of the large jars and pour it into some small cups.
While your students are enjoying their applesauce, I made a free printable for them to work on. They will draw and write about what the family did on their Applesauce Day. It’s a great way for them to practice their comprehension and retelling skills.
You can download the Literacy Snack Applesauce Read Aloud free printable from my TeachersPayTeachers store below
If you’re looking for another fun apple activity to add to your unit, you might like our apple bingo. Bingo is always one of the kid’s favorite things to play in class and is a great way to help build vocabulary.
I hope your class enjoys this book, it really has become one of my favorite apple books. Do you have any favorites?
See you next time!
