Increase your students' writing skills with this quick and easy apple "craftivity" that reinforces the use of adjectives, at the same time learning about the 5 senses. This activity will be free for an entire YEAR, after which time, it will be up-dated & become part of my Apple Sense Science & Writing Packet.
This Johnny Appleseed packet will help students develop their writing skills. It includes:
Run off on red, yellow and green construction paper; laminate and trim the 66 antonym apples to make puzzles. Use them for games too, such as Memory Match or toss them in a basket and have students choose several, to play "I Have; Who Has?" The apples provide 132 words to help build student vocabularies. A blank apple template is also included.
Be sure and check out my list of 290 antonyms + a cover so students can make their own antonym word booklets.
I've also included 80 synonym leaves with 2 blank leaf templates. Run off on green construction paper, laminate and trim. Encourage students to write in synonyms of their own.
32 pages. This packet covers quite a few Common Core State Standards, that involve math and language arts.
Help reinforce number recognition, sequencing, and skip counting by 10's, as students use fine motor skills and advanced thinking, to put the numbered apple puzzles together. You can also use the puzzles to make an apple flip booklet. (See inside photo.)
Increase vocabulary by reinforcing words associated with apples. Have students write them in alphabetical order to practice spelling as well as alphabetizing. Encourage students to use these words in their writing journals. The owl clip art is by Laura Strickland.
Games grab your students attention and keep them focused, while they learn a variety of life skills and standards. Print, laminate and trim the game board template and apple playing pieces. Includes a simple version for younger kiddo's, as well as a bit more complicated set of directions for 1st graders.
