Happy Birthday Johnny Appleseed!!

We had a FABULOUS time celebrating Johnny Appleseed's birthday this week. We learned all about the life cycle of an apple, practiced apple poems and songs, and tasted some scrumptious apple treats! Thanks to Pastor Shane Wheeler (Hallie's dad) for being a wonderful "Johnny" for us!! Thanks to Warehouse Grocery for donating enough apple pies for the whole first grade and Savannah Ausley (Joe's mom) for helping to serve. Thanks to all the parents who sent in bags of apples for our homemade applesauce and our apple bobbin', and thanks to Jessica Wheeler (Hallie's mom) for the yummy caramel apples she made for us. The kids said it was the best week EVER! Take a look...

Lots, and Lots of Bubbles!
Air bubbles, to be specific. We have started learning about Air and Weather during Science. We had the most fun on Monday experimenting with air bubbles under water. If I had a nickel for every time they said, "Look, Mrs. Smith!!" 
Just take a look at their faces. Science is FUN...especially
when you get to go outside and play in the water!

Five Little Monkeys...

Well, ACTUALLY...17 little monkeys!!! 
And they will ALL jump on the bed if you let them!


Can you tell it was ORANGE DAY? We are helping our kindergarten friends learn their colors.
