Apples to Apples

Image of Apples to Apples Game Logo

This weekend was our first touch of fall. The weather was cool and a bit rainy so our outdoor plans changed. We played a game that I had watched my daughter and her friends play many times, Apples to Apples,  a game of comparisons. I kept thinking how really educational the game was and the way it had the players use their background knowledge to make connections.  I also kept thinking that September usually means Apple Time for many teachers. So, I decided to post some resources similar to the Apples to Apples game and links to make your time of studying Apples more sweet!

Apple Apps!


Apples & Pairs: This is a FREE app for students to match words based on synonyms or antonyms.


Candy Apples Free: This is a FREE fun app for students to make a virtual candy apple. They can add toppings and design their own candy apples. Super cute!


Johnny Appleseed iStory Class Children’s Book: This app shares the illustrated story of Johnny Appleseed. The app costs $.99.

Online Resources:


Wordner: This free online game is similar to Apples to Apples. You can play online or make your own cards and print the cards.

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!
