Johnny Appleseed Day!

Hi Friends!

Last month, we had a blast learning about seasons, trees and APPLES! We learned about American folk hero Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman). We learned how apples grow, how seasons affect trees and how to graph. We made adorable Johnny Appleseed pots to adorn our heads.

Kindergarteners are "Good to the Core!"
We learned how all parts of the apple are crucial to the apple growth. Seeds help us grow more apples. We practiced developing our motor skills in making our cute art projects. 

Kindergartners are Good to the Core!!

Kindergarten 2012-2013

We taste tested 2 different types of applesauce: cinnamon and regular. Which did we like best?

Victor was not a fan!


Not a favorite!


Didn't like either cinnamon OR regular!


Not a fan of cinnamon!

Much better with the cinnamon!

Who likes what? Regular, cinnamon or neither?

So exciting as we learn to graph! We discussed which columns had the most and the least. We finished by counting how many kindergarteners (Miss Leonard included) we have in school. Afterwards, we taste tested cheerios...plain and apple cinnamon!

I like the cheerios!

Good to the last bite!

All gone!

Let's see what KDG liked the best...

Only 1 KDG'er liked "plain" better!

Graphing at its best! Krystal loved the plain!

We spent a fantastic day celebrating apples with special centers, taste testing, graphing and art projects.

Such a great group of KDG'ers this year. We have been learning so much! Every day is a brand new adventure!
