Apple Themed Name Writing Activities

Are you studying apples right now?  Do your kiddos need practice writing their names? If so I think you'll really enjoy these apple-themed name writing FREEBIES. 

I do this apple craftivity after reading Dr. Seuss's "10 Apples Up On Top" book. 
The apples that students stack on top of their heads spell their name. 
Show an ABAB or ABCABC color pattern to reinforce the 3 colors that apples can be.

After children share their apple creation, they color in the appropriate numbered box on the
"How many letters in your name?" class graph. 

In the "Find Your Name" apple worksheet, students find & circle their name, then add 3 colored layers of "skin" to their apple

Completed projects for both of these activities make a cute bulletin board for fall.

Later, use the matching apple cards to play Memory Match & "I Have; Who Has?" games, as a super-fun way for kiddos to learn to read their classmates' names as well.

Finally, make an inexpensive "Spill & Spell" name puzzle for each of your kiddos.  Put them in a Snack Baggie so that they can "spill & spell" their name. 

Later, I pass out extra sticks, so that everyone has at least 6, then I call out a shape or capital letter and they arrange them to create whatever I'm asking for.
