Printable Apple Activities for Preschoolers

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

And apples!

This Apple 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

ACTIVITIES INCLUDED:

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)

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)

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

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!

Measuring Bugs and Insects Activity

These measuring cards from our Bugs and Insects Math Activities pack make for a fantastic measurement (non-standard) learning tool.

We used Unifix Cubes, but any small manipulative will work. My Pre-K children worked to see how many cubes long the bugs were. We discussed which were shorter and which were longer, and which bugs were the same length. So, in addition to measuring, we were able to practice size skills and the concept of more/less/same. So much fun, and so amazing!

Print these out on card stock. For heavy use, I recommend lamination.
