I love incorporating themes into learning when teaching little kids. It makes the experience SO much more fun for everyone involved. Every single year I always do a week filled with hands-on apple activities. During this time I am always incorporating apple books into math, science, social studies, and carpet time. Below are my favorite apple books for early childhood.
