Snow White and the Magic Apple

My good friend Shelly had the idea of glittering apples to go with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Here are how ours turned out.

We read the book Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Then we charted the story elements. My students wrote on their dry erase boards while I "shared the pen" with another student at the front of the room.

This is the version we read. I found it at Barnes and Nobel in their discount book section. It is a large hard-back book with bright illustrations and text that is not too wordy. They have a handful of fairy tales like this in their discount books. I paid $6.99 for the book.
The picture icons I used on this chart came from Kim Adsit's fairy tales reader's workshop unit.

We made the apples by clipping the corners and rounding a 6X6 red square. We added a brown stem and a leaf. Then we painted glue on them and glittered them. 

We wrote about what we would wish for if we had a magic apple. 

It's been a crazy week. I defend my dissertation proposal tomorrow and I am a bridesmaid in a wedding this weekend, but when I get back to blogging at the end of it all I have some fun force and motion stuff to share.

Our present arrangement of motivating forces is conflicting with the equivalent privileges of others. I was taught the distinction amongst good and bad by my folks. The quest for satisfaction by Americans is the place the American Dream has gone off the track. The quest for unreasonable riches, influence, impact, extravagance autos, McMansions, and electronic gadgets has substituted for bliss on the planet we live in today. payday loans
