2.Explain to the children the activity we are going to create and what procedures we need to follow.
3.Show my example of what the apple tree activity.

3. Guided Practice-

1.Making an Apple tree using finger painting.

4. Student Practice-

1.The children will get a smock, a blue piece of construction paper with a circle on it, a white piece of construction paper, a pair of scissors, glue, and three different color paints on three paper plates; red for the apples, green for the leaves, and brown for the tree trunk.
2.First, the children will write their name on the piece of white paper. Then the children will place the side of their hand in the brown paint and onto the blue construction paper to make the tree trunk inside the circle.
3.Next, the children will dip their index finger into the green paint and stamp many times on the blue construction paper making leaves.
4.Lastly, the children will dip their pinkie finger into the red paint and dab red dots on the blue construction paper over top of the green leaves to indicate apples.
5.The children will then cut out the circle and glue the circle onto their white piece of construction paper.
6. The children will then wash their hands and take off their smocks.

7. Lesson Closure-

1.Cleaning up the materials after the apple tree project is complete.
2.Having the children resume play time in the classroom.
Measuring Student Progress-
1.I would measure their progress of this activity for this grade level by seeing how well the children used their fine motor skills when cutting out the circle.
2.I would also look at their facial expressions during the project and after the project to see if they are proud of the apple tree that they have created when complete.
