Apple sauce is one of the Brown Room's favorite snack. Last week during snack time the children finished a big jar of apple sauce and we showed the children that the container is empty. Finlay responded with:
"When you're all out of apple sauce you can MAKE more apple sauce."
That inspired the class to make their own apple sauce one day....
While cutting their apples children worked on their fine motor skills. Cutting fresh apples (especially with the peel on) requires strength and precise movements. The children quickly noticed different ways in which they could use the knife as a tool, e.g. pushing the knife down and moving it in a back and forth motion.
What a great reward for all our hard work this morning!
And we made enough apple sauce to also fill up two jars for Victor and his mother Lucilla, as a part of their holiday present. Just like Finlay suggested during Morning Meeting ("Then put it in a bottle and you gotta write apple sauce on it.").
Fantastic job, Brown Room!
