Good old Johnny Appleseed!!

Happy Friday, Friends! Kerri here...

Oh my SNAPS! Thank the Lord it is Friday! I am SOOOO over being hot and sweaty in my classroom all day. Like, seriously OVER IT. Today it was over 80 degrees in my classroom all day, with extra humidity thrown in just for kicks! Get this...Last Friday, it was 93 degrees in my husband's classroom!! I kid you not-93 DEGREES! My poor hubby-7th graders AND scorching heat?? Excuse me for a moment while I go and throw up!

We have been BUSY little bees this week, despite the heat. We learned all about Good ole Johnny Appleseed, with my Johnny Appleseed Math and Literacy Centers. Here's a little sneak peek (minus the 2 centers we will be doing next week!)...

Juicy Rhyming Center

Applicious Short Vowel Sort

Johnny Appleseed Sentence Scramble
Johnny Appleseed ABC Order

Apple Pickin' Bar Graph

Appley Patterns

Johnny Appleseed Number Order

Apple Season Missing Numbers
My kiddos also brought in a bunch of apples, which we sorted and graphed...
The poor little yellow/red apples had no place to go on our graphing mat! Oh well...

I also made this little Johnny Appleseed Sentence Scramble that we will use this coming week, along with my Apple addition center and Apple LifeCycle Center from my Johnny Appleseed Centers! Click on the picture below to download the sentence scramble...

On Monday, we will be making applesauce with the SLEW of apples my kidlets brought in, and watching this CLASSIC Johnny Appleseed video. Guess what?? It's on YouTube!! Woo Hoo!

BTW, I'll be back this weekend with direction on how to make this 
A-DORABLE art project, incorporating apple trees and Johnny!!

Okay, I'm out! Off to get ready for date night with the Hubs!! Check back on Sunday for the art project directions. Your kiddos will LOVE this project, I promise you that!!

XOXO Kerri
