I think just about every first grade class in the land celebrates Johnny Appleseed. We take the folktale as a lesson in good citizenship. I shared my little mini unit earlier, but I wanted to share with you how the kids responded to the core value of the legend. After reading several books about Johnny, and learning a little song, we brainstormed and created a little chart exploring our thoughts on how Johnny Appleseed demonstrated good citizenship.
We decided we wanted to be like Johnny! The kids created a speech bubble with a "good citizen quality" they wanted to show in their lives. Then, of course, I had them don a pot and apple and share their ideas! Here are a few pics I managed to snag!!
I love their ideas!!
Thanks for taking a quick peek into our wonderful world! Stay tuned for more amazing kid stuff!!
