Ten Red Apples

20160816_155136.jpg

For the fall I decided to spruce up my apple themed stories for storytime and outreach. I made a prop to go along with Pat Hutchins’ Ten Red Apples. I placed ornament hooks on small plastic apples and hung them on a plastic shrub in my flowerpot. (I found a bag of 20 apples at the craft store. I used 10 for this story and 10 for 10 Apples Up on Top!) I use this prop to countdown the apples with the children:

I also created lap flannel boards to use this fall. I used my tree-shaped die cut to create green trees, and counted out 10 red pom poms for each child. I placed them in a plastic baggie to go with each lap board. Now, each child can count along with me:
