Create colorful Apples and label for learning fun!
Create colorful Apples and label each Apple with the word identifying its color. As students associate words with colors, they strengthen word recognition skills. Advanced students can learn how to spell and write the colors. Develop color stations in the classroom, where students can work either independently or in small groups.
Use colored Apples to teach colors and word recognition.
