Where has HE been for the last two weeks?

We’ve spent the better part of two weeks studying apples.


We made apple mobiles. We made apple puppets. We did apple patterning. We sorted apples. We tasted three kinds of apples, graphed our favorites, did a survey and played an apple game.


We’ve read Ten Apples Up on Top; The Apple Pie Book; How Do Apples Grow?; Apples, Apples, Apples; Amelia Bedelia’s First Apple Pie; Apples; It’s Apple Picking Time; I Am An Apple and Up, Up, Up, It’s Apple Picking Time. Just to name a FEW.


Today we finished the unit by making a pie in one of our centers. The children rolled the dough; peeled the APPLES; helped slice the APPLES; mixed the APPLES and filled the pie shell with APPLES.


I walked over to Frank, and looked him in the eye and asked, “Frank! What kind of pie did you make today?”


He swallowed his apple, looked at me with a smile and shouted,


“PUMPKIN!”




Yeah. My job is done.

Frank may need some extra help.... Just sayin.

As for your hormones.... are you sure they didn't inject you or alter them by giving you liposuction on your back?

Ann Imig said...

So so so cute.

Mellodee said...

I can see that Frank listens to the beat a different drummer! Nothing wrong with that....mostly!

Missy said...

Well, they are both round...

Steven Anthony said...

its all pie...lol

Keyona said...

Well now I want pie. You baking one?

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Well, it is almost October. Halloween on the brain?

Gigi said...

It's not that Frank hasn't been paying attention - it's that he's moved on. He's ready for Halloween.

Cringe....that sounds just like something my daughter would say. She's a friggin' genius, but also has Asperger's.

That would explain my Kindergartner's current obsession with apples. He has to take one to school by Wed. Must be on the same curriculum schedule?

SkylersDad said...

Frank will someday take over the world.

Joanie M said...

That boy is ready to move on! Time for pumpkin!

PUMPKIN!

Losing Brownies said...

Fantastic!

What would be better is if your admin was there doing a walk through and asked him that.

Dawn said...

You are covering pumpkins next, right? Maybe Frank is just psychic. LOL

WeaselMomma said...

He marches to beat of his own drummer. I like it.

Just a suggestion though, put a protective cork on the end of that kids pencil.

Gaston Studio said...

I'm with Frank... go against the flow and be your own person.

I heart Frank ...

Amy, Woman Exploding said...

Frank hangs out on my planet.

Heidi said...

Oh, poor thing...yes, you AND Frank. :)

Bodaciousboomer said...

When you're on social security, the Franks of the world will be running the world. That's kinda scary.

CSY said...

I have a five year old and two four year olds at home, and I think I have this same conversation (about things other than apples) twenty times a day. Hilarious.

Holly said...

pie? did someone say pie? I love pie, please pass the pie!

JENNerilizations said...

THIS is why we should not be marketing Halloween in August. I'm talking to you, Target!

Brenda Susan said...

Maybe you didn't emphasis apples enough. :)
