Included In Apple Ending Sound Match-Up:
To get you started, this great kit includes all of the items below. This is ideal for helping you get your classroom excited about all things fall, going back to school, and apples! This is an ideal activity to keep them busy and having fun during centers, small groups, or those free time hours.
There are 42 pages of centers, covering several common ending sounds. Each apple barrel has five whole apples, each one showing a different picture that starts with the corresponding letter.
This resource also comes in black and white to save on ink.
Materials Needed for Apple Ending Sound Match-Up:
Getting Apple Ending Sound Match-Up Ready:
Print the match-ups (Color or Black & White), laminate and cut using a paper trimmer. Gather all of the pieces and place in a plastic container. I love using plastic pencil cases to store centers like these. It keeps everything in one place and does not take up a ton of space.
This obviously doesn’t take a ton of time to put together and makes a wonderful activity to help your kids have fun and learn at the same time.
Doing Apple Ending Sound Match-Up
Students will start the activity by choosing an apple with a letter on it . My daughter chose the apple barrel with the letter “L”. Encourage your students to sound out the word to hear the ending sound.
Students will then sort through all of the apples with pictures looking for the ones that end with the letter “L” sound.
Each apple barrel has five whole apples with a visual. Once the apple barrel has has five whole apples representing the corresponding letter, they can move on to a new letter and start again.
Another way this could be completed, is to have all of the apple barrels laid out on a table or even the floor. Students will then sort through all of the whole apples and place each one at the correct apple barrel.
If you have younger (or struggling) students that would be overwhelmed by the amount of puzzle pieces in this activity, scale it back. Provide them with only a few of the letters. Once they master those, you can slowly add in more.
If you love what you see, then you will LOVE this Apple Match Ups Bundle!
