How CUTE are these Apples?

I have been making these apples for years but ran into a slight problem when I went to buy the fabric to make them.

I guess I got in the habit of making them every year and didn't even realize the world around me was a changin!  The prints aren't available anymore, discontinued, out of style, gone like the Backstreet Boys!!  YIKES!  News flash Alison, YOUR APPLES NEED A FACELIFT!  So, after about an hour at the local JoAnn Fabrics store(who by the way gives teachers a discount) this is what I came up with...........

Sorry about the bad picture, I was in a hurry.

Last week we also spent time with all of the fabulous activities Rachelle shared during her post on apples. 
As a follow up to our unit on apples each child made their own "Johnny Appleseed" book. Writing with my first graders has to be with out a doubt my favorite time of the day.  I really don't think there is a more amazing process than watching a first graders writing develop.  As always here are a few samples of the different levels of writing I see each day...........
