Johnny Appleseed Day
In first grade, we are discussing apples and Johnny Appleseed. We are learning all about tall tales, fiction and non-fiction stories, character traits, and many other literary elements. We also learned about “how-to” writing and using transition words. We wrote a paper on “How to Make Applesauce.” All of this led up to Johnny Appleseed Day. On Johnny Appleseed Day, we painted with apples, made homemade applesauce, and tried all kinds of different apple related foods! It was very exciting!
