Johnny Appleseed

Friday, September 19, 2014

One more week until FALL BREAK! We are entering our tenth week of school and I am totally exhausted and in desperate need of a break! First quarter is so hard, I can't wait for time to relax and regroup. I just wanted to stop by real quick to share a couple picture of the Johnny Appleseed writing and art project we finished this week.

We have read several Johnny Appleseed books over the last two weeks and so we created a bubble map and circle map to show what we have learned. (Our school-wide focus this year is Thinking Maps)


Students used a red crayon to circle two adjectives on their circle map and then two facts from their bubble map. We took that information and used the sentence frame: 

Johnny Appleseeed was (adjective) and (adjective). He __________ and ______________. 

I created the little craft template to display their writing and it made the cutest bulletin board! 
I love looking at this bulletin board because it reminds me that cooler temperatures are on the way! I LOVE FALL!

Seriously! Happy Fall Y'All :)
