Today we read a Weekly Reader all about apples. We discussed how the Weekly Reader is a magazine and magazines are like books, but have a few differences. We learned four different things that people do with apples and we brainstormed a few additional ideas that were not pictured. We also learned the different parts of the apple and why each part is important. On the back page, we numbered the different phases of the apple tree's life from beginning in winter to ending in fall! I placed the smaller versions of the magazine in the fall basket in our bookcase for students who would like to choose one to put in their book box for Read to Self when they go shopping for new books.
