I love fall and all the activities that go with it. We started our apple unit today, so I made a large apple to put Johnny Appleseed facts on. After reading about Johnny Appleseed, we talked about him, how he traveled all over the world to plant apple trees, and about the kind of person he was. Since we have talked about wild/tame animals during reading, their favorite fact was that he had a wolf as a pet. They said "Mrs. Key, you aren't supposed to have a wolf as a pet. They are wild animals." I love how first graders minds think. Tomorrow, we will add the facts we wrote to the apple. Later in the week, we will make a Johnny Appleseed craft and write about him.
