I am a Reggio Emilia inspired Full Day Kindergarten teacher and mother to three young children. This blog is meant as a communication tool for the families of our children and as a learning tool for the many educators who follow us. Please feel free to comment on posts and participate in our collective understanding of emergent curriculum.
One of our children brought in some apples and the children were curious about them. Mrs. Bombardier has been reading some apple poems and books with the children to help explore this idea. Today she decided to make apple crumble with our class.

1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup soft butter or margarine
4-5 medium apples (peeled and cored)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Slice apples and place in an 8 inch buttered dish. Add brown sugar and lemon juice. Blend well. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl. Cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle topping over fruit and bak for 30 mins. (or until done) at 375 degrees F. Serve warm, plain, or with whipped cream. Enjoy!
