All About Apples

Are you ready for Johnny Appleseed Day next week??? I am excited to celebrated apples. I wanted to share some of my favorites from last year with you all. We read some great books, did some apple research and crafts, and played lots of fun apple themed math and literacy games, I even have a free resource for you all at the end.

These are some of my Favorite Apple Books, which can all be found on Amazon. Have you read Bad Apple yet? It's a cute story about Bullying. The Gail Gibbons book is a little much for Kindergarten, so we break it down into small chunks instead of reading it all at once.

Last year, I created this Apple Research Unit. It is differentiated for Kindergarten or First Grade. It has information about apples, two apple crafts, a thinking map for the apple life cycle, a tree map to describe an apple, and lots of writing sheets. My kids loved this last year.

This was a combination apple/fall sensory table. It has bird seed, leaves from the Dollar tree, plastic apples from Michaels, construction trucks from Amazon, and table decor from Hobby Lobby. The kids loved it. We used this for all of September.

I LOVE these Apple Math and Literacy Centers. This includes 12 different Apple themed Math and Literacy activities that are perfect for Kindergarten. The subitizing apples are my FAVORITE! The kids really like the Apple Words. there are a few different list that they can use, depending are their abilities. They can write the word or trace it. The apple word and letter sort is a great activity to put in the pocket chart.

We made this adorable apple math craft from my Fall Math Crafts. There are three differentiated fall math crafts and  three matching math centers. You can either have students work on number sense to ten (perfect for Kindergarten), making 5, or making 10 (perfect for 1st grade). These also come in a bundle with Fall, Winter, and Spring Math Crafts.

Finally, I have a FREE Math Printable for you. This is an updated version that I have offered before. You can download it HERE. I hope you all enjoy all of these apple ideas!
