making an apple tree.
Eating apples and peanut butter and watching an orchestra play Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride" and then, "Old MacDonald Had a Farm."
stove popped popcorn (which has nothing to do with the letter A, it's just what we wanted to snack on) and learning to use scissors.
Things turned around after our initial "slow" start. I quickly learned that this little girl needs one art project after another. So...as we read stories and talked about the Letter A and Adam and Eve and eating the fruit in the garden, Ada drew and cut and glued and colored, and the stories seemed to stick.
