Johnny Appleseed Shared Reading Singable (& Mini-Movie) is a story of the life of Johnny Appleseed and how he planted apple trees. The book is sung to the tune “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. This product includes Little Readers, sequencing activities, two Short A word games and MORE! It also features a Mini-MOVIE!
NOTE: This product includes an M4V file that can be shown on a computer and/or large screen. This mini-movie includes the pages of the “book” AND our voices singing the song! It is an engaging (and easy) way to teach the “singable” to your class. In order to play the mini-movie, QuickTime Player is needed or another program that converts an M4V file.
