Kindergarteners Hold Apple Celebration

Kindergarten students at Washington Drive Primary School in Mrs. Moccaldi’s class recently celebrated Johnny Appleseed’s birthday and Apple Day! The students spent time learning about apples, the parts of apples, and how apple trees grow through Interactive Read Alouds and hands on activities.   

The students turned themselves into their own version of Johnny Appleseed and as a culminating way to end their unit on apples, Mrs. Moccaldi and Ms. Semertzides invited parents to come in for an Apple Day celebration. The students had a terrific time taste testing different kinds of apples, painting their favorite color apple, creating their own apple trees, and making apple stamp pictures.
