Easy to Differentiate
As always, the apple activities are designed for kindergarten and first graders so that you can easily stretch your strongest learners and break concepts down for kids who are struggling.
For instance, give students rhyming practice by having them clip the word that rhymes with the picture in the middle of the apple…
Or STRETCH the activity by having students sound out those CVC words on a record sheet!
For students who need to work on alphabet sounds, pull out the 26 alphabet puzzles…
Or if sight words are more their mode, type the words you want students to practice into the EDITABLE puzzles and have them follow up with writing practice.
Because the game is editable, you can practice any words under the sun: Dolch words, Fry lists, classmates’ names, themed fall words, alphabet letters… the possibilities are endless!
Math and Science Activities
Even the shape games have an apple theme!
Work on measurement, learn about buoyancy and practice the scientific method with an easy prep apple investigation.
Build apple boats and experiment with the design to fine tune them.
There’s even a powerful anti-bullying activity that shows kids how harmful teasing, taunting and excluding can be.
The mega bundle includes math games, literacy centers, science experiments, STEM challenges…
EVERYTHING you need for a month of motivating apple lessons!
