1-2-3 Come Do Some Apple Activities With Me

Activities for Dr. Seuss's 10 Apples Up On Top storyThe 3 main characters in Dr. Seuss’s story “Ten Apples Up On Top” are a dog, lion & tiger, so I thought it would be fun for children to practice number recognition and counting to 10 with an animal "slider".

After reading the story, have students transition to this whole-group craftivity.

Two of each animal, plus I’ve included full-color templates so you can quickly & easily make a sample to share, helping explain what you want your students to do.

Two are in BW the others in color.

The apples are numbered as well as blank, so that students can write them in.

So that the "slider" is not pulled out, have children fold and glue the end. Wahla! Instant stop guard.

* Children lay their animal down, and point to each number as you count the apples to ten.

* Students exclaim: “Hooray! Ten apples up on top!”

* If you’re also learning how to count backwards from 10, do that next, by having children pull the apple slider back down, pausing at each number, looking at it and saying it.

“No apples up on top. 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-0. Blast off!”

* As they yell “Blast Off!” they jump in the air, and can quietly file out to their backpacks to put their animal slider away.

Have older students glue two apple strips together to count to 20 and work on those tricky teen numbers.

This is also a great activity and story to read for a substitute teacher. (Instant lesson. Just tuck in your sub tub).
