How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World {FIAR}

Social Studies:
We located all the countries on our wall map 

Emma worked on counting and drawing apples via the Apple Pie Tree lapbook from Homeschool Share while Connor worked on Apple Fractions from the same unit.  We (Connor and I) also read Apple Fractions

these apples and "worms" we had from when big brother was in preschool.  The Big Red Apple (Hello Reader, Level 1) was a perfect thrift store find.  It matched this wormy apple activity so perfectly!!  As a bonus it was perfect for Connor to read aloud to Emma.
Language Arts:
Also, how adorable is this book:  Apple Pie ABC!?
Emma was on a roll this week.  I printed off way more than I thought we'd use.  She'd do a worksheet and then beg for more.  So more we did!  (Big brother at this age was very uninterested with doing paperworks.  Which is totally fine at this age!)
A is for Ant! (this "a" was left over from Connor's preschool days)  We ate "ant" (raisins) as a snack.
We read "I Saw an Ant on the Railroad Track " to go along.  I adore this book.  It is one of my favorite children's books.  Funny.  Poetic.  Cute.  Sense of impending doom as the train clickety-clacks closer and closer.  It's great!  This is actually one I happened upon at the library 3 short years ago during Connor's A week, and we fell in love and had to own our own copy.

We used Evan Moor Literacy Science Grade 1, focusing on Week 14, The Brain and Skull, to match our character trait theme, Teachable.
We talked about the fall of man using our Read and Share Bible.  Also, I had Connor put in order some Creation printables I got from Christian Preschool Printables.

Extra Bits:

Connor drew a street scene, as instructed in the FIAR manual.  His market is the purple middle part.  He then proceeded to draw Jedi's and Storm Troopers complete with hummed theme music.
This dude with circles?  I asked what that was all about and he says, "He has coins taped to him.  For the market.  But he's sad because the market is closed."  ha!

We are reading Little Pilgrim's Progress.  We got to the chapter where Little Christian gets his armor.  Naturally, Connor had to role play.  =)
