Apples and Fox playdough mats, task cards, picture cards, and play mats provide fun autumn activities for preschool. Understanding position words is an important foundational skill for both language and mathematical understanding. This activity includes 12 color cards (repeated in black and white) and 3 play mats that illustrate the following spatial relationships. The cards are not printed with the word pairs in order to give you more flexibility in their use.
above / below in (inside) / out (outside)
behind / in front of on (on top of) / under next to (beside) between (in the middle)
before / after to the left / to the rightheavier / lighter shorter / longer
The 10 playdough mats are designed for the child to explore the number concepts 1-10. Each mat has an apple tree with the corresponding number of apples, a fox, and a blank tens frame.
Additional ideas for using the play mats and my favorite playdough recipe with Apple Pie Scent round out the resource.
