Book Week: “Johnny Appleseed”

"Apple juice and apple butter/ Apple sauce and apple cobbler/ My, oh my, sweet apple pie/ Yum!"

“Apple juice and apple butter/ Apple sauce and apple cobbler/ My, oh my, sweet apple pie/ Yum!”

 

On Friday, 29th January 2016, 2MP dressed up as characters of the story, “Johnny Appleseed” by Pleasant deSpain.  They performed a two-minute play very well, confidently delivering their lines while being alert on their blocking and actions.  They won third runner-up in the Lower School Division (Grades 2-5)!  Special thanks to Ms. Wendee for preparing the class for this exciting event!  (For other photos, see Gallery:  Book Week.)

 

"John Chapman was his real name/ The wild frontier he helped to tame/ He planted apple seeds, which grew into trees/ This was his story, everyone clap now please."
