Apple Centers

I just love apple picking time! There are so many fun ways to incorporate this fun seasonal activity into your classroom! All of the centers shown here are in my Apple Centers Bundle on TpT.

My first math center is Apple Counting Mats 0-20. You can see in the picture that I use mini apple erasers  but the set includes apples that you can cut out and laminate. Do you notice that the frame around each one makes an AB pattern? I love when the kids notice that - just throwing in learning all the time!
Next up is Count the Room - Apples. Hang the cards around your classroom. Place the recording sheet on a clipboard. Now find, count and write how many! It's a fun way to count, write, and get
moving!
My next center is Apple Pattern Cards. Practice completing the AB, ABC, ABB and AAB patterns. This includes 46 pattern cards and is easy to differentiate.
Roll, Say, Keep Shape Recognition is a great way to practice recognizing the following shapes circle, square, triangle, rectangle,heart, oval, diamond, octagon, hexagon, and trapezoid. This makes a great center activity or "go to" game when work is finished.
And the last math center . . . Apple Ten Frames! This set includes ten frames for 1-10. Just place the correct amount of apples on the ten frame. PLUS it includes a fun ten frame game to practice simple 
addition and subtraction. All of the apples are included. 
Learn upper and lowercase letters and beginning sounds with Apple Beginning Sounds Match Center. You can use this set of cards in many ways. You can also use it at circle time and in the pocket chart!
This next activity is a class favorite every year! We play Apple Rhymes several times in circle time before I put it in a center. Each child gets a card and decides if their pictures rhyme or do not rhyme and place it below the matching picture. SO MUCH FUN for kindergarten kids!!
How about a fun game of Apple Letter Bingo? This game comes with uppercase and lowercase versions to practice all of the letters A through Z! It's perfect to play at a fall class party, too!
Spelling sight words is fun with these Apple Sight Word Puzzles! There are color coded 2, 3 and 4 letter sight words to spell. Each set also includes a check list of words to build!
This next center encourages letter recognition AND handwriting! To play Apple Spin and Cover just spin the spinner, identify the letter and cover or write it on the recording sheet!
This bundle also comes with a BONUS! The Five Little Apples Pocket Chart includes a poster, pocket chart words, crowns to act it out AND an interactive reproducible!

And here is an Apple FREEBIE for you!
