Apple Activities and Centers for Pre-K & Kindergarten
Inside this fun pack you will find tons of apple-themed activities ready to engage your learners. Plus, many of the activities are differentiated and contain two levels of play!

Check out a few of the activities in this apple-themed resource pack below…
Alphabet Clip Cards
The alphabet clip cards are great for strengthening letter recognition skills and fine motor muscles! The kids will love clipping and unclipping the clothespins to pick the matching letter on the cards.
This activity comes in 3 versions, making it perfect for differentiation and use throughout the whole year! There is a separate set of clip cards for practicing uppercase, lowercase, and mixed case letters.
Number Write and Wipe Cards
This Number Write and Wipe activity is great for adding to your math centers. Print and laminate the cards once and they will be reusable for years to come!
Writing with dry erase markers is always exciting for kiddos and this activity will bring the fun while also providing tons of number writing practice!
Beginning Sound Match Up
Looking for a hands-on way to practice beginning sounds? This Beginning Sound Match Up is so easy to prep and will keep your students engaged.
The fun pictures are easy to recognize so students can clearly identify the beginning sound and find the matching half of the apple.
Ten Frame Clip Cards
These Ten Frame Clip Cards are great for strengthening counting and subitizing skills! The ability to look at a set of items and immediately know the number takes lots of practice and these cards will add some hands-on fun.
Students simply identify the number of apples in the ten frames and clip the corresponding number that shows the total.
Color recognition is an important skill and this Colorful Apples activity is sure to be a hit in your literacy centers! The apple cards and printable recording sheet are easy to prep and come in 2 versions.
For this activity, students pick a colorful apple card and color one on the recording sheet to match. In the more challenging version, they can pick a card and find the color word on the recording sheet, coloring to match.
