Apples have Feelings is a great activity to use to help students identify feeling words and situations that make us feel certain ways.  Children will get super creative with this yummy project!

This activity is perfect for the beginning of preschool and/or kindergarten.  Students will shake 10 chips in a cup and drop the chips on their apple tree.  They will count the total number of yellow and red chips and determine which color they have more of.  To make it more challenging add one of the recording sheets.
Counting and using thongs is a perfect combination!  Students will use their fine motor skills picking "apples" and placing the matching number into the basket.  Identifying numbers and one-to-one correspondence reproducible and printable will compliment this activity.

Patterns are more fun with colorful apples!


       Matching colors and identifying color words                      are fun with hands-on centers!
