It's the Magical Product Swap featuring Michelle from Just Wild About Teaching!!

Hi Friends- It's Lisa!

Today is the day that I have been waiting for. It's the Magical Product Swap hosted by the amazing Jessica Stanford from Mrs. Stanford's Class!
I was so excited to find out that Michelle from Just Wild About Teaching was my swap partner!
Just Wild About Teaching
 She has such cute ideas & craftivities. If you haven't seen her blog, hop on over & check it out!
I knew exactly what I wanted to review from Michelle. I had my eye on her Johnny Appleseed unit and craftivity since she introduced it on her blog, so she sent it my way. :)

This is a great resource to have for your upcoming apple day or Johnny Appleseed unit in the fall! It includes a variety of apple activities that integrates reading and writing. It includes the following activities:
Johnny Appleseed Word Search- my students always go gaga over word searches!!
Fun Facts about Johnny Appleseed and a True/False worksheet to assess if students remember the facts.
Apple Vocabulary Cards! I am a huge fan of vocabulary cards in any unit, because 1st grade is such an important grade to work on vocabulary.
Students can draw their version of Johnny Appleseed. I can't wait to see what my students come up with!
I was so happy to see that their was a yummy applesauce recipe included.  I'm definitely making this recipe with my students this year!
The pack also includes a few different writing activities for Johnny Appleseed:

There is a class graph for apple taste testing too!

I love this Johnny Appleseed adjectives page! That's always a great skill to review!

And my most favorite part...this Johnny Appleseed craftivity!! How cute is this?!?

This packet and craftivity will be a great addition to any apple unit that you do in your classroom. I am super excited to use it for my Johnny Appleseed Traveling Party in September! Your students are sure to have a blast working on these activities!! Here are the links to Michelle's TPT store and the specific link to her craftivity:

Michelle will also be reviewing my Kids of Character pack for the swap! Keep on the lookout for that too!!  A BIG thank you to Jessica Stanford for hosting this brilliant product swap and a BIG thank you to Michelle for graciously sharing your product with me!! Stop by Jessica's blog & check out all of the product swap reviews. :)
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!,
