Apples and Pizza

This week, besides prefixes and suffixes (another post, another day!), we were working on fractions and Johnny Appleseed. Yes, a little late in the year to be honoring good ol' John Chapman, but in our reading series (Harcourt Trophies), they have his story as a Reader's Theater, and since most of my kiddos couldn't participate reading that, until now, we waited. It went well with our plant/animal life cycle unit :)

So, a few Pinterest-inspired activities: The fraction pizzas my sub did while I was out sick (unfortunately, I just got them up, and after a few corrections my kiddos did!) and "getting to the core of Johnny Appleseed." I thought they turned out cute. We also did an anchor chart on Johnny Appleseed as well.

Our "brag" wall :)

A few pizzas...I like the one with the bugs! :)

I also threw in my fossil anchor chart as well as our "metamorphosis" one (yes, I had to use clip art for deer after my first attempt, which the kids thought was a dog!).

So, hope you find something useful! Feel free to comment or ask questions! I'm excited because tomorrow is our "unmuffin" episode for Electric Company, and I am excited about our activities!!! "I love it when a plan comes together!"
