Johnny Appleseed Day

Our first-grade classes celebrated Johnny Appleseed day in honor of John Chapman who was born on September 26, 1774. Students rotated from classroom to classroom where they learned about apples, tasted and voted for their favorites, enjoyed delicious apple pie, and created their own “tin cap” to replicate the one worn by Johnny.

It seems appropriate that our young students study Johnny Appleseed, at one time his life was saved by an 8-year-old boy.  “One morning [Johnny] was picking hops in a tree when he fell and caught his neck in the fork of the tree. Shortly after he fell, one of his helpers, 8-year-old John White, found him struggling in the tree. Unable to get him out of the tree, young John White cut the tree down, saving Chapman’s life.”*

Día de Johnny Appleseed

Nuestras clases de primer grado celebraron el día de Johnny Appleseed en honor a John Chapman que nació el 26 de septiembre de 1774. Los estudiantes rotaron de aula en aula donde aprendieron sobre las manzanas, probaron y votaron por sus favoritas, disfrutaron de un delicioso pastel de manzana y crearon su propia “gorra de lata” para replicar la que llevaba Johnny.

Parece apropiado que nuestros jóvenes estudiantes estudien a Johnny Appleseed, ya que en un momento dado su vida fue salvada por un niño de 8 años.  “Una mañana [Johnny] estaba recogiendo lúpulo en un árbol cuando se cayó y se enganchó el cuello en la horquilla del árbol. Poco después de la caída, uno de sus ayudantes, John White, de 8 años, lo encontró luchando en el árbol. Al no poder sacarlo del árbol, el joven John White lo cortó, salvando así la vida de Chapman”.
