stART: Ten Apples Up On Top

This week we have been doing a lot of activities about apples. So, for our stART project, we read Ten Apples Up On Top.

Izzie had so much fun counting and placing the apples on top of her head! I first saw this activity at A Mommy's Adventures. I really had her focus on placing the apples in correct number sequence.

To make it even more exciting, I took an egg carton, added numbers and a little green object (party favor). I had Izzie shake the egg carton and whichever number the green object landed on was the amount of apples she placed on top of her head. This was a great game to practice number identification. I saw the egg carton shake at Live, Learn, Love.

Izzie created her own activity with the apples and egg carton. She enjoyed matching the apples to the correct number in the egg carton.

Izzie also worked on patterns. I found this simple pattern activity here. Izzie hasn't been interested in completing pattern sequences, but this activity really caught her attention and she completed all the pattern cards...several times!
