Check out this pirate ship!

We are nearing the end of our work with apple boxes. We looked at different combinations of 10 using the apple box and we graphed it! Many of the children noticed the pattern occurring in the graph and that it was turning into a staircase and that as the red apples lessened, the green apples grew.
We displayed apples on our big chart using post its.

During language through play, A.Z and G.L worked on the pirate ship they were previously working on at the art center. Today, they added a treasure chest in the ship and flags!
