Dang, I love kid lit. Like, a lot. We moved recently – as in twice in eight months (WHO DOES THAT?!) – and the amount of books we moved was outrageous. I’m not even exaggerating when I say thousands. #teacherprobs All that moving gave me a good chance to sort and organize my classroom library books, so I could easily access them when preparing for a certain theme. Thematic teaching has always been one of my preferred teaching methods because I feel like it makes learning relevant for students and cohesive across subjects.

Check out my favorite apple-themed read-alouds that I use in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. They are perfect to use in an apple unit in the month of September. Activities for each book are also included that are Common Core aligned, differentiated, and engaging. Teachers will love how easy these activities are to implement into their daily curriculum. #appleunit #fall #harvest #applelifecycle #partsofanapple #science #ELA #math #science #socialstudies

In preparation for September, I just recently went to grab all of my apple books and thought I’d share with y’all my faves! Even if you’re not teaching thematically, read-alouds are so important to our students and I couldn’t escape a school day without doing at least one (if not two!).  Besides the stories you get to share, read-alouds are also the perfect tool to expose students to new vocabulary, seasonally relevant material, and generate organic conversation with and between students – because they love to share how they connect to a stories!

Here are my top ten favorite apple-themed read-alouds paired with standards-aligned activities for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. Click the links under each graphic to learn more about the book or activities.
