I designed this apple-themed packet to practice colors, color words
, in quick, easy and super-fun ways, with lots of variety & options.
To celebrate getting ready for back to school
, I'm knocking $2 off for a limited time.
The activities are great for independent centers
or done as a whole group
; and can also be used for a sub tub
, and early finishers
There are over 20, different sets
of (12-on-a-page) apple cards
, which your students will enjoy playing with, as they learn and reinforce a variety of standards
There are apples of all colors
, apples with faces, patterned
apples with polka dots, chevrons, plaids & stripes
, as well as animal prints
& other crazy kinds of apples.
Students can use these cards for sorting, sequencing, graphing, counting
, making groups/sets
, showing equations
, and playing games
What a time saver
! Choose your favorites; make your activities and use them throughout the year every year. Woo hoo.
