It’s apple season, and the MOM children were learning about apples. And what better way to learn about something than experiencing it through all our senses! We matched real apples to three-part cards, dissected an apple and learned about the parts of it, made apple mosaics, traced the names of our favorite apples, and counted apples.
We looked at a collection of paintings by various artists (Cézanne, Van Gogh, Picasso, Magritte, etc.) representing apples in their own styles. After discussing each artwork, the children had a chance to draw a picture of their favorite apple using soft pastels and pastel paper. It was fun to use the soft pastels as pencils, but it was even greater fun to use our fingers to blend the colors together and achieve a very smooth surface.
