Johnny Applessed

Spring Break is over and we are starting our history unit about the westward expansion of the United States by learning about Johnny Appleseed, which also works well with with our new science unit about plants and trees.

Here is a cute apple snack to eat while watching the Johnny Appleseed movie, or to go into a Spring/Easter bento lunch, Usagi Ringo ( Rabbit-shaped apple slices).

This is such a sweet little movie:








Our read-aloud books for this week are about both subjects

We also started reading a Magic School Bus chapter book for our bedtime story

Blaze really loves The Magic School Bus series, so we have quite a few of these books in our book collection.

Sounds like a fun unit! My kids love those Magic School Bus books to.

Have you read How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman? It's a favorite of ours.

My kids all liked the Magic Schoolbus, too.

I have seen it, but we don't own it. It is a cute book. I should look for it next time I go to the library.
