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!
YUM! YUM!

Our 6th grade BUDDIES come in and celebrate with us!

Now there are a LOT of apple & Johnny Appleseed resources on (of course)...PINTEREST!





We start our unit with 
DIRECTED  DRAWING APPLES!

I LOVE  FIRST  GRADE  ART!




( Hard to imagine this was a whole class, directed drawing lesson)
HAHAHA  
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!









They are 2 to a page...copy, cut apart, collate, staple!

The WHOLE month in ONE little BOOKLET!
YIPPEY!

And as we end the month...
our JOHNNY APPLESEED birthday
celebration will commence!
