Apple tree and apple mats along with counting and number cards. This activity can be played in a variety of ways and leaves lots of room for differentiating among your leveled groups for math center time. Cards are chosen and items counted and replicated by the student with playdough and placed on the mats. Worms are made (from playdough) for apple mats and apples(playdough) for the tree mats. Counters are provided for those not wishing to use playdough. Students who are ready to explore addition can use the five frame mats and record number sentences, Ten frame addition mats are available for more advanced students. Two types of cards are available- one set for non readers and those practicing 1-1 counting correspondence and another set for readers. The 2 sets can also be used separately as a matching game- pictures cards matched to word cards.
