The Story of Johnny Appleseed

Johnny Appleseed's birthday will be celebrated on September 26th.   To remember and get to know  about him, we  will be studying all about apples in the coming weeks.   We listened to The Story of Johnny Appleseed  by Aliki.  We learned he was a real person by the name of Jonathan Chapman.  He lived a long time ago.  Johnny Appleseed gave people  bags of apple seeds and planted apple trees  all across America.   After we listened to the story, we shared thoughts about Johnny Appleseed through this Wordle.
