Preschool Apple Life Cycle
There is so much to see and explore during the autumn months. Everything is begin to change color as summer comes to an end.
Not only do coloring pages provide kids with an opportunity to express their creativity, but they provide an opportunity to teach proper pencil grip.
Each simple coloring page in this coloring book includes a caption naming each stage of the life cycle. These captions, written in a dotted font, are perfect for tracing.
After coloring the pictures, let kids trace the words in their best handwriting.
This coloring book is just one of twenty activities included in my apple life cycle bundle.
You can use these pages to introduce the life cycle. Use the cover page as a teaching tool to teach the sequence of the life cycle.
Then, present the coloring pages. Have your child put them in order using the diagram, if necessary.
Bind the pages into a coloring book, if you’d like. Then, let kids use the book to tell a friend or loved one what they’ve learned.
Print these pages on regular printer paper, and let your preschoolers use their favorite coloring medium to complete each page.
You can also laminate them or slip them in a dry erase pocket after coloring the pictures. Then, let your little ones use dry erase markers to trace the words.
