Who is the Apple of Your Eye? (and Blog Glitch?)

Surprisingly for most of my firsties last year, it was their Kindergarten teacher!  Aww...

After discussing the sayings, "An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away" and "You're the Apple of My Eye", I had the kids respond to a few questions.  I assumed most kids would say a family member when asked who was the apple of their eye,  but, nope.  I don't remember all responses BUT I do remember:

*HALF of my class said their K teacher.
*And, a real standout:  "No one.  I'm allergic to apples!"

That last response makes me laugh NOW but at the time, I went into full panic mode:  You see, we ALL just finished eating our homemade applesauce.  Even though I had already checked with the nurse on all ingredients, ( always do no matter what!) I thought maybe there had been an oversight. 

Luckily for all of us, it was just a kid being a bit...silly?  )  Still, it did scare the cinnamon out of me!

In honor of that little one, I made a craftivity for my TpT Store for $2. (Includes recipe,too!) If you use it, be sure to use the apple-related poems in my free September Poetry Packet.

On another note, yesterday, I tried countless times to respond to new blog posts involving reading mostly.  The ones that required that I prove I wasn't a robot didn't work.  So, if you have one of those (ugh!) check it out.  The numbers/letters weren't showing up that I was supposed to copy. Maybe the glitch is fixed now?  Very frustrating!
