This apple themed Math Center allows students to practice counting and writing their numbers 1-10 as well as identifying color words.
Student chooses an apple tree mat (differentiated to work with numbers 1-5 or 6-10). After recording their mat number (same recording sheet is used for all mats), students color the apples on the page to match the color word. After coloring the apples, students count the number of the corresponding colored apples on the mat and write the number on the recording sheet.
An "I Can" direction sheet is included to allow for independent workers.
