I Spy an Apple
This one-page apple life cycle activity is perfect for preschool and kindergarten kiddos.
Because it’s a print-and-go worksheet, it’s perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers like you.
To use this activity, print one for each student. Have children look at the apple seeds in the first box.
Now, have them count how many times that same image shows up in the box at the top of the page.
If your child has trouble keeping track, let them color the images as they find them. Or, they can cover the images with buttons or apple erasers.
Now, write that number in the box at the bottom of the page.
SKILLS TAUGHT IN THIS ACTIVITY
Counting – Kids will practice counting to ten as they hunt for each of the four images in this I Spy game.
Number Writing – After kids count the images, they’ll write the numbers in the boxes at the bottom of the game page.
Visual Discrimination – As kids search for the images in the game box, they’ll strengthen their visual discrimination skills by looking for the differences in each of the items.
