ABC Order Apple Baskets
One of the activities I do at the beginning of our apple unit (and many units that I do) is have kids get together in groups of 3 or 4. I tell them to think of the topic that we are studying and think of as many words as they can that they associate with that topic. I then give them the ABC chart and have them fill in words that deal with that topic for each letter of the alphabet. After working for awhile, we make a big chart with all the words that we thought of and hang it in our writing center area. Whenever they are writing books, or sentences about the topic they can refer to the chart. So...when writing about apples, they might write A=apple, B=blossoms, F=flower, G=Golden Delicious, M=McIntosh, etc.
