Apple Theme Count the Room
I’ve been wanting to create a few write the room and count the room activities and I finally got around to it!
This apple count the room activity is going to add fun and movement to your math centers this fall.
It gives kids a chance to get up and move around the room while learning numbers, number sense, counting, and number writing.
This means it really packs a learning punch!
Differentiated Apple Math Activity
It has numbers 1-20 so that you can differentiate for the different needs of your students.
Some of the students may only be able to do numbers 1-10 and others may be ready for 11-20 too.
The recording sheets are also differentiated for you. There is a version with a tracing guide for each number and a version with blank lines only.
Low-Prep Apple Counting Activity
This apple theme count the room activity is super simple to prep too!
- Apple Theme Count the Room printables (button to download at the bottom of this post)
- Clipboards to write on while walking around
- Print out the apple cards and recording sheets.
- Cut the apple cards apart.
- Put the apple cards in various places around the room. Many people temporarily adhere them to the wall.
- Put recording sheets on clipboards.
Students will grab a clipboard and walk around the room looking for apple cards.
When they come to an apple card, they will use the ten-frame or twenty-frame to identify the number represented. They may do this by sight or by counting the dots in the frames.
Once they determine the number represented they will look for that number on their recording sheet.
Once they find that number, they will write the number in the space provided.
There is room to write each number more than once. This gives you the option to decide how many times you want your students to write them.
Students will continue until they fill in all the spaces on the recording sheet.
I hope your kids have lots of fun with this apple count the room activity!
