1-2-3 Come Do Some Color Activities With Me
It seems that a lot of teachers are still working on apples during October as one big harvest theme. I had a request from one of my preschool teacher friends, to make some apple-themed color activities.
While I was pulling that packet together, Yolanda, a kindergarten teacher in Washington, asked if I could do an emergent reader with the three colors of apples. Thus Apple Colors was born.
Surprisingly, quite a few of my Y5 kiddos thought that apples are simply red, which amazed me, because Michigan is a huge apple growing state.
I designed these color activities so that they would reinforce the fact that apples can be red, yellow & green, while practicing a variety of standards.
The packet includes:
* An emergent reader in color as well as black & white, with options for 6, mini-pages on a one-page template, or 12, mini-pages, so you can make Itty Bitty booklets.
* Posters: Including 9 photo posters featuring pictures of real red, yellow and green apples.
* 4 apple songs with matching posters.
The A-P-P-L-E song includes pocket chart cards.
It’s a super-fun way to practice counting, subtraction, letter recognition, & spelling, as well as listening & following directions.
* An apple color matching game. Students can match color words to pictures, or pictures to pictures.
* 2 graphing activities
* 2 worksheets
* 4, quick, easy & fun apple craftivities. Click on the link to zip on over to my TpT shop to have a look see: Apple Colors.

Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. The nights have been cold, so the trees have really started changing colors.
I think fall is my favorite time of year because of the absolutely gorgeous trees.
It's time for a much-needed brain break to take a drive with my husband. Wishing you a relaxing day filled with memorable moments.
