One of our FAVORITE FOLK HEROS!!
And so we work on reading, writing, fluency, science, & social studies INTEGRATING APPLES all month LONG!
This year on FRIDAY, Sept. 29…we will have a BIRTHDAY party for JOHNNY APPLESEED!
And how do we celebrate?
WE MAKE APPLESAUCE!
Get out the crock pot…chop up some apples.
A little sugar, cinnamon…
The classroom smells SOOOOO GOOD!
I smash it up some for my little ones.
Bring in some vanilla ice cream…bowls & spoons…
Apple Pie A LA MODE!
Our 6th grade BUDDIES come in and celebrate with us!
Now there are a LOT of apple & Johnny Appleseed resources on (of course)…PINTEREST!
DIRECTED DRAWING APPLES!
I LOVE FIRST GRADE ART!
( Hard to imagine this was a whole class, directed drawing lesson)
Good thing there are no TWO apples EXACTLY alike!
LOVE it when they do it themselves!
As the month moves on …QUICKLY….testing & parent conferences in September….
We use our APPLES ARE THE BEST
and JOHNNY APPLESEED booklets
to help us on our learning JOURNEY!
