This week with my kindergartener, we are focusing on number words. One of my favorite books to go along with this concept is Ten Apples Up On Top! by Dr. Seuss. It is such a cute book, and perfect for emerging readers!
I made this page for her to complete after reading the book:
She read the number words at the bottom, then made the correct number of “apples” on top using dot markers (bingo daubers). You can also just use crayons to draw circles if you don’t have the dot markers. Other ideas: for a literacy center, you can put it in a plastic page protector and have students use white board markers to draw the apples, then wipe them off for the next students. You could also just have students use manipulatives like bingo chips.
You can download the page HERE if you’d like to use it with your kids! There are 2 versions to choose from (numerals or number words).
