Students count the seeds on the apple, then represent the number on the ten frame. Next they write the number in the box. Students can use dough, small erasers, counters, dry erase markers to represent the number on the ten frame. I have also provided apple seed counters for you to print if you need them. Included is a related Math Emergent Reader featuring number words. The reader is 12 pages including the cover page. Students read the sentence and draw "how many" on each page. There is a number and ten frame on each page to help with the underlined number word. Number words go to ten in this booklet. On the last page students answer the question by counting one-one. I hope your class will love using these apple theme counting mats.
A set of memory cards matching apple seeds to ten frames with number words are included.
