PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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 may also be purchased separately.

Word Rings:
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.

Apples for My Lunch - Original Counting Poem:
Munch, munch, yum, yum, crunch, crunch, crunch! With such fun repetitive lines, children enjoy participating as you read this original counting poem. The set includes printable apples that can be used on a magnetic board or felt board as you read the poem during circle time.

I have tried downloading the file several times, but every time I try to print it, my printer says there is "nothing to print", "no pages were selected to print" and a "drawing error occurred". I have had no problems downloading and printing the other items I have purchased. I am really looking forward to using these activities. Please let me know how I can get them to print. Thank you.
On  September 30, 2012Jennifer Hier answered:
Oh my....I'm so sorry that you are having problems dowloading the file. I don't know what is going on with the system. Have you already opened a ticket on the "contact us" tab? If you haven't, and/or if they haven't resolved this yet, please send me an email at jgrime@columbus.rr.com with your email address. I will email the file to you. -Jennifer


PS....THANKS for all of your purchases!!



Update: I just downloaded the product from my sellers page and test printed one of the pages and it worked okay for me. The file is a PDF just as the others are. I would suggest that you try downloading the file again from the website. Once you pay for the product you should be able to download it again for no extra charge from the my purchases tab. When the print menu comes up, make sure that either print all, current page, or a page selection (with a page # or range of pages) is selected. Please email me and let me know whether this works.
