We spent a lot of time exploring apples in our preschool classroom this fall. My students needed practice with using a one-to-one correspondence when counting and also with recognizing numbers. I created this simple Apple Basket Counting Sheet to introduce the concepts of matching numbers and quantities. It was a good first number matching activity. Now we are ready to move into doing numbers 1-10! I had the children glue small die cut apples into the baskets, however, small apple stickers would work too. The children could also draw their apples in their baskets. You can see more pictures and read more about our apple activities on my website on our Apple Theme page. You can also find more printables on the www.2care2teach4kids.com website in the Teacher's Files section!
