I love being able to come up with new activities to go with books. Since it’s the beginning of the year and we’re learning our numbers, I thought it would be perfect to make a free printable apple counting activity to go along with Dr. Seuss’ book, Ten Apples Up On Top! It fits perfectly with our apple unit at this time as well.
This is a great addition to your center rotation or for your early finishers to practice their numbers and their counting.

To play the apple counting game, download, cut and laminate all of the pieces so the game can be played over and over again. Included are numbers 1 through 10.
Have the student place all of the number cards in a pile face down and all of the apples in another pile. Have them turn over a number card and place that number of apples on top of the dogs head.
Have them continue through the number cards to practice counting. It’s a great activity for the students to practice their number sense.

I hope your students enjoy practicing counting with apples!
See you next time!
