Group Time week of Aug 2

“The apple of my eye” was how Lorette describes her son in Apple Batter by Deborah Turney Zagw├┐n. What does “the apple of someone’s eye” mean? This week, the children learned apple sayings like “sweet as apple pie” and “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. The children were thinkers trying to figure out the meaning and reason behind each saying.
The children also enjoyed acting out Simple Simon (a nursery rhyme) using finger puppets. They loved the part when Simon tasted the ware because the child having the turn can choose the pie that the pieman is carrying (it’s always their favourite pie).
Tasting the pieman's ware.

"What kind of pie did you taste?"
"It's blueberry pie!"
