Apple Math and Literacy Activities

It’s been a great summer, and while it’s not quite over, I am already thinking about the fall.

And apples!

This Apple Math and Literacy Activities pack contains printable activities that practice the following skills:

– Visual discrimination
– Following directions
– Upper and lowercase letter recognition
– Pre-writing/visual perception
– Pre-reading/comprehension
– Number recognition
– Classification
– Counting
– Number sequencing
– Ordinal concepts

COUNTING APPLES BOOK (1-10)

Children will cut out the pages of this book and have teachers/adults staple them together. Students can count and write the number of apples on each tree, and then color the pictures. Be sure to keep this activity developmentally appropriate. Some children may need help with cutting and may need you to write the numbers for them. Others may want to count and write their numbers before putting their own pages in numerical order.

ALPHABET CLIP CARDS (A-Z)

Apple Math and Literacy Activities

Print these cards out on cardstock and laminate for heavy use. Supply your little learners with clothespins and encourage them to clip each letter’s lowercase partner.

NUMBER SEQUENCING STICKS (1-12)

Apple Math and Literacy Activities

Print these cards out on cardstock and laminate for heavy use. Prompt children to place the cards in numerical order. You may also wish to present different groups of cards (e.g., 4,5,_,7,8) and have your preschoolers determine which number is missing. The cards are also a fun way to teach ordinal concepts (first, second, third, etc.).

Gluing the cards onto jumbo craft sticks makes this activity extra fun for little hands.

VISUAL DISCRIMINATION AND SIZE SORTING WORKSHEETS

Apple Math and Literacy Activities

With these cute worksheets, kids will find the matching letters and color those apples the same color. They will also sort apples by coloring the large ones red, the medium green, and the small yellow. Make it a point to discuss other words for large and small.

What a fun way to start the new school year!

Fishy Friends Felt Board Activity

This fish match up game is a quick and easy way to teach colors and provide visual discrimination practice. It can be used as an independent table top exercise, or as a small group activity. In addition, it makes a fun and interactive circle time activity. Pass the fish pairs out, then go around the circle and ask each child to find their fish’s friend. Next direct the children to place their fish pairs side by side on the flannel board. Another alternative is to have the teacher place a fish on the board, and then have the child with the matching fish come up and complete the pair.
