Parts of an Apple
Activities that instruct children to label different objects are great for building vocabulary.
You can use labeling worksheets to introduce or reinforce vocabulary words relevant to the theme you’re teaching.
These types of activities also help preschoolers become familiar with the written words.
When you give preschoolers a cut and paste worksheet, you give them an opportunity to practice their scissor skills.
Gluing the cutout labels in the correct boxes is a good way to develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Who knew one little worksheet could provide so many benefits!
It’s pretty easy to make this a reusable activity. First, have your child color the apple on the worksheet. Then, laminate the page.
Cut off the bottom strip (the part with the label boxes).
Put a velcro dot on each blank box as well as on the back of each label. Preschoolers can stick the labels on the diagram, and take them off again.
As a challenge, you can mix up the labels and have the kids correct your mistakes.
