Do you do an apple theme for back to school?
I do. It’s one of my kiddos favorite units. I like it because I can teach every subject, and a variety of standards using apples.
With that in mind, I designed the “Stack ‘Em Up!” apple game.
It’s quick, easy and fun and helps practice number recognition, counting, the 3 colors of apples, color words, and patterning.
Simply “print & go”.
Another way to practice similar standards, as well as one-to-one correspondence, is with this set of red, yellow and green colorful apple cards.
I give my kiddos matching colored pony beads to use as manipulatives, but you could also get a pack of brown or black ones to use as apple “seeds”.
I’ve also included a BW set of cards, so that kiddos can make their own.
Put a scoop of popcorn kernels, sunflower seeds, dried peas or beans in a Snack Baggie, so they have an inexpensive manipulative to use.
