Learning how to identify and spell their name is a hugely important skill for our young learners. This fun printable invites students to search for and color the apples that have letters found in their name. While they can surely use any color they want, it is fun to pick out some “apple” colors – we could add yellow too!
When learning the alphabet, it is important to make it fun! Spinner games are a hit and super easy to play. All you need is a pencil and a paperclip. In this spinner game, you spin the spinner, then find and color an apple with the matching letter.
Counting objects one at a time is something that also takes practice. Building up that one to one correspondence can be done in a lot of ways, and I recommend playing a lot of hands on counting games as well. This printable works well as a review and adds in some fine motor/pencil grip practice if they color the images.
Going along with counting objects one at a time is being able to identify numbers and know that they mean something. Knowing that a number represents a quantity is an important skill that goes beyond number identification. This printable invites students to read the numbers on the apple trees, then take it one step further by adding that many apples to the trees.
