Ten Apples Up on Top – A Literature Connection Activity

Ten Apples Up On Top (one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books) is a great book for teaching so many early learning skills and having fun at the same time. The Apple #2 die from my Calendar Set is the perfect one for creating this fun creative artistic project while enforcing skills at the same time. These kinds of projects and plans are my favorites because, well…I love to craft up creative stuff.

MATERIALS

SuperStar Machine
Apple #2 Die
White Paper
Colored & Patterned Papers
Paints or Crayons
Glue

INSTRUCTIONS

To get started, have the kids (and yourself) draw their head shot/picture. You might want to show a few examples on the board and encourage them to use the whole space of a 8x10 piece of paper. I used watercolor paper so I could paint in my color but you could also use any thick white paper with crayons.

Next I added TEN apples up on top.   The kids can glue them all on. They could number them 1-10. I chose to keep it interactive and a “game” type thing.

I cut the apples for decorative red papers. They can then also be used for the following skills:

Sorting
Patterns
Matching
Flashcards

I love the Apple #2 die and all of the other 11 in the Calendar Set that I designed for Ellison. I can’t wait to use it again and will certainly be ready to share when I do.
