Fall is the perfect time to get out the apple-themed activities! Roll and cover math games are always a hit with my students. They’re also great for use in small groups, partner work, or math centers. This free Apple Tree Roll and Cover Math Game for Kindergarten is perfect for strengthening counting and addition skills in a fun, hands-on way!

Apple Tree Roll and Cover Math Game
With this apple-themed math activity, students will get to practice counting, addition, and fine motor skills (picking up those small pieces and placing them just right)!
If students play with a partner, they strengthen social skills like taking turns, supporting their classmate, and being patient.
How to Prep
Provide small manipulatives as game pieces. I used pom poms but you could also use beads, mini erasers, or a yummy food item like cereal.
How to Play
The idea of this game is to roll both dice, count up or add the two numbers to get a total, and check to see if you have that number on your tree. If you do, cover it up!
Students continue to roll and count until they cover up all of the apples on their tree.
If playing in pairs or small groups, students take turns rolling the dice and covering up their apples. The first student to cover up all of the apples on their tree wins!
This is a fun and engaging apple-themed math game that will have your students excited to count and add!
