Ready to go “apple picking?” Yes, I enjoyed our apple sorting activity so,I replaced our letter Aa basket with numbers.
This apple tree counting is just right for some fun, hands-on practice with counting, number recognition, vocabulary building and fine motor skills.
When I saw the number basket online, I quickly printed them out and laminated them. Luckily, below our building is the office stationary shop. It’s quite expensive (aed 3.50) but it’s a lot thicker and atleast I can use it over and over). Then, I cut them apart so that I have baskets numbered 1-10.
Like in letter Aa sorting, I explained to Inigo the direction and let him try on his own.
I don’t have enough apples so I lined up our baskets from 1-5 only (which is great for working on number order) and then he started to count the apples and paired them up with the correct basket.
Now, I’m absolutely in love with our first letter of the week unit. It really is my favorite lesson. I love all of the apples activities we made for this week, a lot of learnings and memories to ponder.
