Are you looking for math ideas that will go with your apple theme? You will love these apple counting activities for preschoolers!
We add a variety of apple counting activities in the fall to help our preschoolers develop simple counting skills. We spread these activities throughout our day, with independent work during our centers time, as a large group during circle time, and in groups of 4 children during our small groups time.
We balance these counting activities by learning about apples in other areas of the classroom, too. We tasted apples and made our own applesauce. We did spin art on paper apples at the sensory table. We enjoyed our apple sensory bin and made prints with real apples. Apples can be weighed and graphed for science, picture books about apples can be read. and don’t forget about all those apple finger plays and songs!
Truly, we could explore apples for months! I collected these fun apple counting activities to go along with any apple theme.
