[Johnny Appleseed] and a shout-out to Heidi of Swamp Frog First Graders

I'm so far behind, I can actually see my behind, lol.
So. . .when i realized that Johnny Appleseed's birthday is THIS WEEK (as in September 26th!!!), I freaked out a bit.
(And then I realized that actually knowing the birthday of Johnny Appleseed is kind of freaky in and of itself, lol).

But, Heidi of Swamp Frog First Graders to the rescue with her super cute Johnny Appleseed Craftivity and Math pack.  So excited to use this pack this week!  Her post also includes links to online resources that are a perfect fit for first graders learning about Johnny Appleseed.  :)

I LOVE the rubric attached to the math page.
Seriously going to use that on a lot more stuff than just this one math page.

In our classroom, we'll be combining Heidi's pack with my newly created Research Writing pack.  I'm excited to see the finished result as my littles research and write a biography about Mr. John Chapman.

So. . .if you're behind like me, or just need a super fun Johnny Appleseed activity that has learning value, check out Heidi's post.

Have a great week!

Remember, tomorrow is Tuesday and I'll be posting over at Latter-Day Crafters.
See you back here on Wednesday.


  1. make me laugh! Don't worry, I can see my behind too. I keep thinking it is going to get better. Thanks for letting me know about the resource. I will have to check it out.

  2. I am your newest follower! I have a free Johnny Appleseed unit available at my TpT store as well, if anyone is scrounging for tomorrow :)
