See, I told you it has a ton of stuff!!

And don’t worry if you can’t print in color, because I was able to do this pack in both color and black/white (some packs I can’t do that because of clip art availability).

I had to make a few adjustments in the black/white pack, but all of the objectives are the same. The differences were that in the color pack some of the sorting and patterning activities were designed with color patterns and sorting according to color. I changed them to different objects in the black/white set.

Without further ado, let’s take a closer look!

First off, is the apple orchard scenery that you can get for free separately here. I’ve included it for convenience and I included a few extra kiddos in this pack.

You can use the play dough set to work on language skills, counting, positional words and the very important, pretend play.

Matching is very important skill to learn. It seems simple on the surface, but noticing details in objects will actually help kids become better at math later on when they notice inconsistencies in patterns or errors in figuring a problem.

These bright cards are so much fun to work with and the clothespins add a bit of fine-motor practice to the activity to help prepare kids for writing.

Apple basket counting activity

You can use this by laying all the apples and baskets out on a table or you can hole-punch each of them and thread the apples onto a pipe cleaner.

Finding the largest and the smallest

After you laminate these, you can put them on book rings to keep them contained. Then, the students can use a dry-erase crayon or marker to indicate which is largest/smallest as the cards indicate.

Puzzles for matching

Somehow, I missed taking a picture of these, so I’ll show you the computer generated sheet instead.

You can increase or decrease the level of difficulty of the games by changing the amount of cards you are finding matches for.

Line-up puzzles for counting to 5 and 10

To make it easy for beginners, give them one puzzle at a time. You can even print an extra copy, slide it into a page protector and have the students match the pieces to that. For more skilled kids, you can mix the puzzles together, like we did.

Missing numbers

missing numbers count up to 10 apples

Students can find the missing numbers from 1-10 with these fun Granny Smith apple cards. (Jaida says she does not love Granny Smiths…)

Tic-Tac-Toe

More than just a fun game, this helps students to build reasoning skills without even feeling like they are working. (I had to remind Emma that Jaida was ‘little’, so she should take it easy on her…lol!)

Write-the-room

I’ve included 3 variations to make differentiation easy. You can choose from tracing, writing or stamping. I like to place the pictures close to the floor, so that Jaida has to stand up, bend down, sit down, lean over, etc. In other words, lots of good movement.

Pattern mats

I’ve included 4 different types of patterns and follow-up pages for each one. AB, ABC, AABB, ABBA

Sorting Cards

And last, but not least….

Tracing cards

You can also put these on a book-ring after you have prepped them. Jaida begged me to let her do all the ‘loopdie doopdies’. I was happy to oblige! It gives her great preparation for writing. She’s a perfectionist, so she was quite distraught that her straight line wasn’t perfectly straight!I know that’s a lot of pictures, but it was the best way for me to show you all the goodies in the pack!
