Need some fresh math and literacy activities for your upcoming apple unit? This set will fit the bill! Activities are appropriate for any preschool, kindergarten, homeschool, or special education thematic unit on apples. Like my other sets, this set is easily adapted to a variety of learning levels. I also use my own original vector graphics and always use easy-to-read fonts for our early learners. Please check out the product preview file for photos of completed activities.
Apple Tree Count:
This grid-like math game promotes interaction between children while teaching one-to-one correspondence and counting. The game can be adapted for more advanced students by using the advanced spinner. The concepts of simple addition, simple subtraction, and adding-on can be practiced when playing the more advanced version. Separate game boards for each child eliminates the confusion of knocking over or moving other's game pieces that frequently occurs with typical game boards. Apple Tree Count Game
may also be pruchased separately.
Apple Size Sort and Graph:
Children compare and sort apples by size. They can graph their results on the printable graph.
How Many Apples Are On Top? Book Template:
Use this template to create a fun apple themed counting book for your class. Children are very excited to see their silly photos on the pages, and they enjoy reading the book over and over. The set includes covers, pages, and apples in both full color and black and white. How Many Apples Are On Top Template

Word rings are a great addition to our writing center. Six thematic words with pictures can be placed on a ring, word wall, or pocket chart.
Our Favorite Color of Apple - Graph Labels:
Create a class graph with the printable labels and counters.
